OSLA Information Studies: K-12

OSLA Information Studies: K-12 | Academic Honesty in Durham Catholic Schools | Scoop.it

"OSLA Information Studies, K-12" sets expectations for information literacy for every grade in three strands: 1) Inquiry and Research, 2) Information Technologies, and 3) Information and Society.


The focus on information and technology has profoundly affected the nature of society and the world of work. More information is accessible to all people in our society, and more businesses are seeking employees who are proficient in information retrieval, analysis, and communication, in conjunction with highly developed technological skills. It is therefore vital for education in Ontario to develop comprehensive information literacy skills.
