Mrs. Myers asked Mr. Eaton to split the class into three groups. She created guiding questions for each group, and all of the groups took the same topic (Scientology) but researched it using a different resource. One group took on Google, one the catalog, and one DISCUS. When about twenty minutes was left in class, each group sent a couple or few representatives to the front where they used the ActivPanel to share the results of their search.
