With Internet becoming the number one source of information students flock to when looking for resources and references for their researches, it becomes imperative that we make sure that our students are equipped with the appropriate gear to keep them afloat in a sea of information and junk knowledge. I am not talking here about the tools students need to use such as  the different search engines available out there but more importantly they 'whys' and 'hows' of using these tools. We want to raise a generation of discerning researchers and critical thinkers and to do this we definitely need to shift the focus from the product and tilt it  more towards the process. In this regard I am sharing with you two important visuals that shed more light on the outline of the process of research. I invite you to have a look and share with your students.
