Researching the Question

A couple of days ago in class, we discussed Galileo (the research database) and how to research.  One of the key takeaways from this lesson was how important it is to use keywords from the question to search for research.  In class, we eliminated the “useless” words in our question so that our question turned into keywords that could be searched.

Galileo is a research data base that utilizes keywords to bring up scholarly articles.  These articles are typically research studies, that have evidence to support their claims.  These articles will help me in my research by either eliminating communication apps, or validating them. These articles will also give me reason for why the communication apps are the best or worst.  Galileo will be a great resource to use throughout my genius hour project.
