The ROSE project

Being proficient in searching, selecting, evaluating, organizing, and using information has become one of the most critical skills of the 21st century. Searching and finding high-quality information is a core human activity, whether it is for learning, decision-making, active citizenship, or pleasure and enjoyment.

The ROSE project is aimed at developing and testing an innovative teaching approach for Reflective Online Search Education (ROSE) in secondary education, leveraging LOIS findings.

This web-based platform offers teacher support and additional materials to teach Online Searching and Information Literacy.

In particular, ROSE allows teachers to track their students’ search processes, by visualizing their searching techniques and aggregated data in real time.

ROSE is a project funded by the Swiss National Research Foundation and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.
