How Should We Teach Information Literacy in Schools?

How Should We Teach Information Literacy in Schools? | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

When the majority of information moves from print to digital form, we need a new set of critical skills in order to find what we need and use if properly. Many students get to college without having learned much in the way of information literacy, although professors often expect it was already taught. How should schools teach kids about finding good materials for research? About plagiarism? About finding authoritative sources online?

The Intersection of Digital Literacy and Social Media -- Campus Technology

The Intersection of Digital Literacy and Social Media -- Campus Technology | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
As educators look for new ways to teach digital literacy or the use of digital technology to find, organize, comprehend, evaluate, and create information, some are turning to social media to help advance the concept in the college classroom.

 

"Digital literacy and social media is an inseparable and powerful combination," said William J. Ward, a social media professor at Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. "Done correctly, this combination enhances the quality and efficiency of teaching, research, learning, communicating, collaborating, and creating."

How Did Howard Rheingold Get So 'Net Smart'?: An Interview by Henry Jenkins (Part Three)

How Did Howard Rheingold Get So 'Net Smart'?: An Interview by Henry Jenkins (Part Three) | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Many have talked about a pyramid of participation in which many consume information online but few actively produce it. These models are clearly hierarchical with production valued more than consumption. Yet, concepts like curation, or circulation, focus on mid-level activities which are more widespread in our culture and which nevertheless have been central to defining digital culture from the beginnings.
