Using databases when searching for information is an important skill to have. A few weeks ago, we’ve started visiting Webcat. Webcat is our VSB web catalogue.
When at home, I encourage the students to start using databases a few time per week. If your child claims to have nothing to read in French, Webcat can be the solution for you!
This is a tutorial I created for your child. This one is about how to use l’Encyclopédie Découverte (World Book in French). I’ve decided to only focus on the visual dictionary part but finding your way around is pretty simple. Your child should have no problem exploring this database.
I will add this tutorial to the “Tutorial” section of this blog, for future reference.
