Research will be a snap with Collections in the new and improved Microsoft Edge browser.
Create Collections in the New Microsoft Edge Browser
You can use Collections to keep track of information that you find as you search online. To begin, click the Collections icon located at the top right of the browser.
Give your collection a title. When you find a website that you want to use, click Add current page, and the website will be saved on the side. You can even select a sentence and drag it to the side to add to your collection.
If you just need to make note of something you find, add a sticky note by clicking the note icon at the top of the collection.
When you are finished, you have several choices. I love that you can send the information to a Word document. I will definitely teach students how to use Collections when working on research projects this year.
Ideas for Implementation
- Student research projects
- Lesson planning
- Media literacy lessons – ask students to verify an article’s claim by finding at least 2 sources the confirm the claim.
- Vision board
- Sharing sites for students to visit
