Re-imagining Information Literacy Competencies

Re-imagining Information Literacy Competencies | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Barbie E. Keiser


"The task force was charged with updating the information literacy competency standards for higher education “so that they reflect the current thinking on such things as the creation and dissemination of knowledge, the changing global higher education and learning environment, the shift from information literacy to information fluency, and the expanding definition of information literacy to include multiple literacies, e.g., transliteracy, media literacy, digital literacy, etc.”'

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Here's an article by Barbie E. Keiser,  recommended by Dr. Carl Heine, educator, entrepreneur, musician, and information fluency wizard. (Not to mention my dear friend).  Thanks Carl!

Howard Rheingold: Teaching Critical Thinking in Age of Digital Credulity

Howard Rheingold: Teaching Critical Thinking in Age of Digital Credulity | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By HOWARD RHEINGOLD August 21, 2014 - 8:12am 


"I’ve been writing about digital media for nearly 30 years, and over that time, I’ve been asked over and over again by readers, critics, scholars and myself: “Do these personal computers, digital networks, webs of unfiltered information, mobile attention magnets do us more good than harm — as individuals, families, communities, and societies?” I have come to believe that the answer is: “It depends on how many people know how to use these technologies to their own benefit and that of the commons.”

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I always get a kick out of Rheingold's writing and thinking.

Sparking thought!

Steve Vaitl's curator insight, August 26, 2014 9:41 AM

Excellent resource for EVERYONE online!! In today's age of information, it is no longer an issue of recalling information. "Just Google it" is much more than simply a catchy phrase. Nearly every bit of information can be obtained in seconds, somewhere online. The issue has become finding the proverbial "needle in the haystack".

It has become mush more important to understand how to filter the good from the bad and the ugly.

Beware online "filter bubbles"

Beware online "filter bubbles" | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
As web companies strive to tailor their services (including news and search results) to our personal tastes, there's a dangerous unintended consequence: We get trapped in a "filter bubble" and don't get exposed to information that could challenge or broaden our worldview. Eli Pariser argues powerfully that this will ultimately prove to be bad for us and bad for democracy.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

If a machine (Google, Bing, Skynet) controls your access to information your perspective could be warped in ways you are completely unaware of.   Science fiction? Not really. Easy to escape. You bet!  Listen to Pariser's ideas, and then act to improve and control your own filters. ~ Dennis

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.

This is a great infographic for showing the thought process of finding information.

Terry Yelmene's curator insight, August 16, 2015 11:50 AM

A pretty well-reasoned, fundamental thought process for most knowledge work research.  This serves as an even better backward (there-to-here) model to guide the core research workflow process automation  a knowledge worker may want to devise, install.  Think work product-informed -> DevonThink structures -> DevonAgent w/'Active Filtered' automated searches.  The most important drivers here are - 'ethical' - (more than just multiple sources, a stage needs to be added at the work product stage to provide authenticity) and - 'bias' -  (a post automated search,  subsequent manual search for corroborating items selection to provide authority).

Curation: Creatively Filtering Content

Curation: Creatively Filtering Content | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Curation is a life skill and an important part of being digitally literate.  Educators need to know how to curate information so they can teach students how they can curate content for research, their interests and passion. As part of this process educators need to encourage students to curate information using techniques that address their own personal learning needs.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

We introduce content curation using both Diigo and Scoop.it in our E-Learning for Educators class. It's our firm belief that online teachers must be information fluent and that they teach those skills to their online students.


We also see these skills as a strong foundation for building personal learning networks.

loving your figure! obvious for curators, not so much for students and teachers
Aparna Nagaraj's curator insight, August 29, 2014 10:30 AM

You come across a lot of stuff, find some of them valuable, find value in some parts, and you see connections between the different stuff you come across. You curate by filtering, extracting, and bringing out the connection between the stuff you find, and this curated new stuff becomes more valuable than those already shared stuff that you found. Valuable enough to be shared to others who are looking for similar stuff as you are.

The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy - Edudemic

The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy - Edudemic | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Many teachers have added ‘digital literacy’ as number four on the list of literacies their students should have (or be working towards, in most cases). Reading, writing, and math are now followed by digital literacy. Obviously, depending on the grade level  you teach, your students will have different abilities in each of the four areas, so your expectations and your teaching approach may differ quite noticeably from your colleagues. But the nagging question still remains for many teachers – what exactly is digital literacy?

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

The three R's and a DL (digital literacy)?  I'd prefer the term Information literacy (and actively promote information fluency).  Using tech to think. Using tools to make.  Being digitally literate is a but a step on the 21st century path.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, May 22, 2014 7:43 PM

The eight C's devised by Doug Belshaw are a neat framework to consider for use in thinking about digital literacy. There are others that are also useful and that is also useful. It will be interesting to note how this field is defined over time.

No Simple Solution for Improving Students’ Research and Critical Evaluation Skills


The ability to locate, evaluate and accurately utilize complex information, often referred to as information literacy, is a critical skill for success in school, work and life. A new study by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO) recommends colleges and universities implement institutional information literacy strategies to help students develop these skills. While the study examined several different models for teaching information literacy, on their own none proved significantly advantageous, and the authors suggest multiple approaches may be required.

Information Forensics: Five Case Studies on How to Verify Crowdsourced Information from Social Media | Truthiness in Digital Media

Information Forensics: Five Case Studies on How to Verify Crowdsourced Information from Social Media | Truthiness in Digital Media | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

"False information can cost lives. But no information can also cost lives, especially in a crisis zone. Indeed, information is perishable so the potential value of information must be weighed against the urgency of the situation. Correct information that arrives too late is useless. Crowdsourced information can provide rapid situational awareness, especially when added to a live crisis map. But information in the social media space may not be reliable or immediately verifiable. This may explain why humanitarian (and news) organizations are often reluctant to leverage crowdsourced crisis maps. Many believe that verifying crowdsourced information is either too challenging or impossible.The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that concrete strategies do exist for the verification of geo-referenced crowdsourced social media information.The study first provides a brief introduction to crisis mapping and argues that crowdsourcing is simply non-probability sampling.Next, five case studies comprising various efforts to verify social media are analyzed to demonstrate how different verification strategies work."
