21st century information fluency

21st century information fluency | SoHo  Library | Scoop.it

Digital Information Fluency (DIF) is the ability to find, evaluate and use digital information effectively, efficiently and ethically.  DIF involves Internet search skills that start with understanding how digital information is different from print information, knowing how to use specialized tools for finding digital information and strengthening 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.

Seth Godin Asks The Big Question: What Is School For? | Edudemic

Seth Godin Asks The Big Question: What Is School For? | Edudemic | SoHo  Library | Scoop.it

We’re not going to make anything  happen unless we all agree. We need to understand what school has been and where it’s going to answer the big question of what school is for. That’s the basis of Seth Godin’s latest TEDx talk at Brooklyn Free School. In the talk, he uses a hammer, a box, other props and his elegant words to describe his perspective as a father, education enthusiast, author, and thought leader. He doesn’t use any slides which is testament to how powerful his words are.

Joe Smith: How to use a paper towel | Video on TED.com

TED Talks You use paper towels to dry your hands every day, but chances are, you're doing it wrong. In this enlightening and funny short talk, Joe Smith reveals the trick to perfect paper towel technique.

 

What did he want to know? what did he think would happen? How did he test his hypothesis?

 

Write Tools Exercise: Use 3 sticky notes (after he gives statistics, after he explains his idea, and at the end).


Apply same scientific method to a new hypothesis:  if this works for paper towels, would it work for less time under a hand dryer? How much less time?
