SEEK! A game for Information Literacy Instruction

SEEK! A game for Information Literacy Instruction | J Leahr Information Literacy | Scoop.it

"I'm Andrew Walsh, an Academic Librarian and National Teaching Fellow.

 

I want to get students excited about developing their information literacy, but let's face it - that's a losing battle... Instead, how about making information literacy instruction as interesting, active and engaging as possible and make sure some deep learning takes place?

 

Once of the ways I've been trying to do this recently is through games. This crowdfunding attempt is to help develop a non-digital, quick and easy to use card game that can be used in one-shot, 50 minute information literacy sessions..."

The Road to Information Literacy: IFLA Satellite meeting keynote

Kirsti Lonka, University of Helsinki, Professor of Educational Psychology (@kirstilonka) gave the opening keynote at last week’s IFLA Satelllite meeting on Information Literacy, at Tampere University, Finland, entitled ‘Engaging learning environments for the future.’ There are now some photos from the conference online. Kirsti told us how teachers in higher education might actually be able change society with their thinking, but they don’t always recognise this. Kirsti talked about how we need to adapt new ways of collective learning for better results and to consider the emotions we experience while we are learning. This theme of ‘emotional intellgience’ came up a number of times at the conference, and chimed with my work on ANCIL and the affective dimension of learning.

On the face of it you’d think that searching on a modern search engine such as Google is a pretty simple and straightforward skill. And mostly, you’d be right. It’s the exceptions that are interesting.

Research Blog: Teaching the World to Search


For two weeks in July, we ran Power Searching with Google, a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) similar to those pioneered by Stanford and MIT. We blended this format with our social and communication tools to create a community learning experience around search. The course covered tips and tricks for Google Search, like using the search box as a calculator, or color filtering to find images.
