Search for Information

The mastering of informational skills is a must. Students have access, anywhere and at all times, to a vast quantity of information. And in a near future, there will be even more information, and without any doubt, more efficient ways to access it.

This skill allows students to efficiently find, choose and collect relevant and quality information when it comes to processing and achieving a production.

It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
