Digital and Information Literacy Framework: Open University

Digital and Information Literacy Framework: Open University | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

What is digital literacy and how is it different from information literacy?

Digital literacy includes the ability to find and use information (otherwise known as information literacy) but goes beyond this to encompass communication, collaboration and teamwork, social awareness in the digital environment, understanding of e-safety and creation of new information. Both digital and information literacy are underpinned by critical thinking and evaluation.

The Rise and Decline of an Open Collaboration System: How Wikipedia’s Reaction to Popularity Is Causing Its Decline

The Rise and Decline of an Open Collaboration System: How Wikipedia’s Reaction to Popularity Is Causing Its Decline | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

Open collaboration systems, such as Wikipedia, need to maintain a pool of volunteer contributors to remain relevant. Wikipedia was created through a tremendous number of contributions by millions of contributors. However, recent research has shown that the number of active contributors in Wikipedia has been declining steadily for years and suggests that a sharp decline in the retention of newcomers is the cause...

Less than 24 hours after finishing work until the New Year I started pondering a possible project for 2013… I’ve written a couple of books now via traditional Library and Information Science type publishers and get a bit depressed at how expensive they are – especially my first book which is essentially lots of practical active learning tips that can get dropped into a session when we’re teaching information skills..."

Making games for Libraries

Making games for Libraries | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

"...I've arranged a workshop in Leeds called "Making Games for Libraries" which has more than 30 people expected to attend. I'm hoping that by the end of that day we'll have a bunch of potential library related games prototyped. Importantly for me, I'd like as many people as possible to see these prototypes, to spark more ideas in people not attending - hopefully we can get some games out there available for everyone to share and use in their own libraries. So I'll be asking everyone on the day if they are happy sharing their ideas and prototypes - then putting them all on this blog. I'll do the same for any further workshops I run as well. I may write the occasional post about other library games I've seen, or related topics, but I'm hoping the bulk of posts will be sharing prototypes and ideas from others!"
