When you are shopping for an item, (a new pair of shoes that fit properly, a better car, a new laptop or tablet) there are actually a lot more things that go into the thought processes and considerations than one might consciously acknowledge.
|A Better Car||A New Computer||"Best Shoes"||New dog for the family|
|Reliability factors||Speed||Purpose of the shoe (walking, running, work, special occasion, etc.)||Peer reviewed v Popular magazines v Google|
|Gas mileage||Storage Capacity||Any foot issues? (high arch? flat feet?
pronation, bunions, achilles, etc) Narrow? Wide?
|"Best breeds" or "worst breeds"|
|Cost to purchase||RAM||importance of: stability, durabiltiy, looks||Should any breed be banned from being owned by a family with small children?|
|Cost to maintain||Reliability||Cost|
In groups of 2, select one of the topics, above. Using the whiteboard, brainstorm 1. WHAT your criteria are for the topic, 2. WHERE you should look for information, THEN conduct a search using 1-2 resources. THEN determine how will you narrow your topic based on your search results. Share your results and thoughts with each other, using the Whiteboard, and then share with the group.
IN your group, DRAW a picture of how you went through this process.
