Paul! Hello again. So what sorts of tools or lessons have you implemented that help students do this?

Hi Emma. The great beauty of this is that you don't need to do a lot other than let students find their way with a little guidance and encouragement. Students need internet access and I prefer that their responses come in the form of a mind map so I show them how to make them. It also helps to have an arsenal of questions that are not particularly easy to Google search -- one of Mitra's sample questions is: "Can you kill a goat by staring at it?"
