Planting the seeds of a digital literacy education program

Planting the seeds of a digital literacy education program | Information Literacy | Scoop.it

The main objective of the library sessions is to increase students’ awareness of the library as an important part of university life, and to help them develop some digital literacy skills along the way.

 

The sessions will be based on gaming principles, with the students organised into teams to complete challenges involving the use of digital technologies to earn points or rewards. Each team will have an ipad mini, and use a range of apps to complete the challenges, which will have them moving around the library, learning about the library as a virtual and physical space, and completing activities which teach them information literacy skills related to searching, evaluating, managing and sharing information.

History of Information Literacy Instruction

History of Information Literacy Instruction | Information Literacy | Scoop.it

Just as the development of libraries and the information industry are tied to historical, social, and economic developments in society, so is the history of teaching people about information. This essay will show how general social developments, particularly in the United States lead to corresponding developments in education, library services, the information industry, and both the bibliographic instruction and the information literacy instruction movements, especially in academic libraries and school library media centers.

UBiRD (User Behaviour in Resource Discovery) Project

UBiRD (User Behaviour in Resource Discovery) Project | Information Literacy | Scoop.it

UBiRD has been successfully completed

The User Behaviour in Resource Discovery project has come to its end. The team led by Professor William Wong with members Researcher Dr Hanna Stelmaszewska (EIS), Ms Nazlin Bhimani (Library Resources), Mr Sukhbinder Barn (MDX Business School), Professor Balbir Barn (EIS) have successfully completed their work investigating information seeking behaviour of students and researchers from Business and Economics study.

The key findings are:

(i) users used both those subscribed by the library and those freely available on the Internet,

(ii) when the level of information literacy and the domain knowledge increase the tendency of using library resources,

(iii) PG and Experts used EBSCO, ProQuest or Emerald whereas Library Catalogue and federated search engines were more popular amongst UG,

(iv) users found databases structure hinder, complex and difficult to use,

(v) users very rarely applied only one search (e.g. Simple Search) instead they carried out combined searchers (e.g. Re-formulated Search, Link Search, System Suggestion),

(vi) current systems do not provide ‘seamless’ transition between these searchers making the search and retrieval process difficult and time consuming,

(vii) the groups we studied used different means of storing the material (e.g. copy & paste into Word, save in a folder, bookmark, tabs and more sophisticated features provided by various system such as RefWorks, Endnotes, My Research),

(viii) the current systems lack good ways of storing and retrieving documents that can be accessed easily and transferable across different resources.

26 Teacher Tools To Create Online Assessments

26 Teacher Tools To Create Online Assessments | Information Literacy | Scoop.it

You teach, which means you need to know what students do and don’t understand.

Which means you need to assess.

You teach in the 21st century, which means you use the internet and digital tools to plan, share, and curate learning.

Which means online assessments could be a boon to your teaching, whether for blended learning, a flipped classroom, eLearning, to better communicate learning progress to parents, or for students to track their own mastery.

Lori Wilk's curator insight, February 2, 2014 12:08 AM

I will definitely have some feedback after reviewing these tools to create online assessments. Creating assessments is an important first step because you don't give the prescription on how to fix a business before you've figured out what the problem are-that's why you begin with the assessments- they become your base starting point of reference. This article has tools to help you create those online assessments.Let me know which are your favorite tools.

I mostly agree with all the "outrageous claims". I have thought about most of them myself. Worth to read.
