How to get art students to make the most of internet research

With the best will in the world, it seems inevitable that a lot of time is spent on distractions and diversions when you set art students to researching their theme online. Like all of us, they sometimes struggle to keep to the job in hand and not to wander off into unknown cyber worlds which yield little useful research…

So to set them off on the right track and support them in finding high quality, known artists for their research I put together this interactive pdf/poster (you can click on the image to download from my TES shop).

The file is printable at A3 as a poster to display in the classroom and direct students to helpful sites, or the pdf can be shared digitally and students can click on the links and be sent directly to helpful, well-researched, reliable websites. It’s not rocket science, but it helps!

What are the websites you’d add to this? I’m updating all the time, so if you have any suggestions to share, I’d love to know.
