Perspectives on information literacy: a framework for conceptual understanding

Information literacy, 40 years since the term was coined, remains a conceptually contested aspect of library and information science research. This paper uses a review of the literature related to the concept of information literacy to identify three different perspectives, their historical origins, and connection to library and information science practice. The three conceptualisations we identify from the literature are: 1) information literacy as the acquisition of “information age” skills, 2) information literacy as the cultivation of habits of mind, and 3) information literacy as engagement in information-rich social practices. The goal of this synthesis is the creation of a stronger, more united field of study, as well as a clearer alignment between information literacy and the formal and informal contexts where people employ and develop information literacy.

Designing Learning Tools: Methodological Thoughts. & reflections about curation as an active service agency

Designing Learning Tools: Methodological Thoughts.  & reflections about curation as an active service agency | Informed Learning Praxis | Scoop.it
Tolstoy has suggested that: The vocation of every man and woman is to serve other people .
Anne Whisken's insight:

Considering this Tolstoy quote: The vocation of every man and woman is to serve other people' within the context used here of educational technologies, gives rise to a question about the constant need to monitor emergence of new technologies which can be applied to learning experiences and creation of new knowledge.  Following that is the review of learning affordances possible with this technology and then the promulgation of that throughout the community of people involved in designing learning experiences within disciplines.   Is it likely that there is use of these technologies within disciplines for creation of new knowledge, but that these are not being taken into the education of students within disciplines? When we look through the Six Frames of Informed Learning to design curriculum, we determine which technologies are best for which teaching and learning intention.  When we look at the Seven Faces of Informed Learning we consider the learning experience from the point of view of the student - how will use of this particular  technology in this  experience in this discipline provide best for the learning that we want to take place?  But we can ask also:  what technologies are available that enable us to ask questions that we could never have asked before? How does this technology enhance and transform the learning and indeed the questions we ask of learning design itself?  What new technologies exist to make possible that which would not have been possible before?  Does use of this technology enable new learning in this discipline?  Can we as educators maintain a watching brief of emerging technologies that could be applied in our respective disciplines to enable new learning and new knowledge creation?  Who has the time for that?  Who are the curators who look for the educational affordances of new technologies?  As educators can we build these new learning technologies into our discipline curriculum design so that students are seeing them modelled by discipline experts?  More than even learning use of the most appropriate technologies in the discipline, they would see in action the finding, review and selection of technologies which have the best affordances within this discipline and for this learning purpose. They would see reflective practice in the critical selection and use of technology for discipline learning and knowledge creation.  Use of information for learning, Informed Learning, entails more than 'information' per se - it requires the larger phrase  'use of information for learning' :  the pedagogies and of necessity the technology or format in which and by which the information is being accessed, used, queried, created, applied.

7 Ways to Use Technology With Purpose - A.J. Juliani

7 Ways to Use Technology With Purpose - A.J. Juliani | Informed Learning Praxis | Scoop.it
Why are you using technology? Or more importantly, how are you using technology to better the learning in your classroom and/or school? If you are like me, then you’ve had your fair share of technology screw ups. Projects that didn’t make sense (but used the tech you wanted to bring in). Activities that were ruined …
Anne Whisken's insight:

1. Collaborate in real time 2. Reflect and share 3. Better research 4. Write and Re-Write 5. Make something (that matters) 6. Keep a Digital Record 7. Mastery Assessment

'Innovative Teaching Challenge #5: Use technology for a purpose. The next time you use it in class make sure you explain the “why” to your students. This is an important step that we often forget to do.'

In Informed Learning, teachers design learning experiences in their disciplines which select the best learning technologies for that experience, so that students learn to use information - and its technology - as they learn the content.

Openness in Education: Technology, Pedagogy and Critique

Anne Whisken's insight:

Reflection: Informed Learning provides a model through which to look at changes in pedagogies to take on the opportunities and challenges of learning technologies whilst still providing sound discipline content education.  Student learn good  information-use practice as they learn the content.  Can they provide for good teaching and learning in online spaces?  Yes, if the question is constantly asked, what learning is taking place as this information is used for this purpose via this format. Informed Learning provides for ongoing critique of the technology and pedagogy used for learning.
