21st Century Information Fluency - Digital Information Fluency Model

21st Century Information Fluency - Digital Information Fluency Model | 21st Century Literacies | Scoop.it
Digital Information Fluency (DIF) is the ability to find, evaluate and use digital information effectively, efficiently and ethically. DIF involves knowing how digital information is different from print information; having the skills to use specialized tools for finding digital information; and developing the dispositions needed in the digital information environment. As teachers and librarians develop these skills and teach them to students, students will become better equipped to achieve their information needs.
