WikiBrains

WikiBrains | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

"As you explore, connect and create WikiBrains will suggest content that may be useful to you. For example, if you thought Bird + Wings, we may suggest you an interesting article on the physics of bird flight, or a related video or picture. The idea is to expand your limits by connecting you to what the rest of the world is thinking."

Anthony Beal's insight:

Worth a look. A very visual way to prompt search topics (and encourage discussion) when planning a literature search. Suggested bubbles are generated based on your search that you can then add with one click to a mind map

Reframing Information Literacy as a Metaliteracy

"Metaliteracy provides the foundation for

media literacy, digital literacy, ICT literacy,

and visual literacy. While information

literacy prepares individuals to access,

evaluate, and analyze information, metaliteracy

prepares individuals to actively

produce and share content through social

media and online communities."

Information literacy and embedded librarianship in an online graduate programme | Kumar | Journal of Information Literacy

Information literacy and embedded librarianship in an online graduate programme | Kumar | Journal of Information Literacy | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

This paper reports on an embedded librarian project aimed at providing incoming online graduate students with essential information literacy skills to succeed in an online programme. It describes the design and implementation of the project, the results of pre- and post-instruction surveys of students’ information literacy skills and students’ perceived ability, confidence, and anxiety when accessing information using library resources. The assessment of the embedded librarian project is discussed in the context of the methods used and the needs of online students.

Nevermore Sithole's curator insight, August 15, 2013 8:07 AM

Pre and post-instruction surveys of student's Information Literacy Skills are vital in measuring impact and success of the Information Literacy program.

 

Generally, most institutions embark on ILS training without carrying out a pre-assessment evaluation hence most programs lack direction.
