Information literacy during the preschool period | Information, Media and Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

Building upon research into literacy development in early childhood education, the past decade has evidenced an increase in the applications of Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) to support children's learning and development at home, at school and in the community. This article aims to look at young learners' information literacy (IL) through applications of ICTs, with an emphasis on the preschool period.

Educational Technology Guy: 10 Technology Skills Every Educator Should Have

Educational Technology Guy: 10 Technology Skills Every Educator Should Have | Information, Media and Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

Overall, educators need to understand some basics about technology and that it is not a be-all-end-all solution to everything in a classroom. Technology can help teachers differentiate and provide new experiences for their students. Technology can also help students better understand a concept and provide extra help for them. Educators need to start with good pedagogy and lesson objectives and activities and then look for technology that can enhance those lessons, improve teaching and learning, and help students learn.

Don't you also feel curation is part of the creative process?

Building Good Search Skills: What Students Need to Know

Building Good Search Skills: What Students Need to Know | Information, Media and Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

Search competency is a form of literacy, like learning a language or subject. Like any literacy, it requires having discrete skills as well as accumulating experience in how and when to use them. But this kind of intuition can’t be taught in a day or even in a unit – it has to be built up through exercise and with the guidance of instructors while students take on researching challenges.

Advocacy for Your School Library Helps All School Libraries

Advocacy for Your School Library Helps All School Libraries | Information, Media and Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

A teacher librarian's story......I explain to him that it is vital that librarians shout about all the wonderful activities happening in their library. I do just that with this blog, the library website, twitter, email blasts, discussions with my principal, notices in the daily memo and articles in the school monthly newsletter. Since I became a librarian, I have used whatever media was available to advertise the library. I had to.
