The Road to Information Literacy: Kirsti Lonka's 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.

School Library. Media Literacy and Learning Commons in the Digital Age: Knowledge Model

School Library. Media Literacy and Learning Commons in the Digital Age: Knowledge Model | Learning skills and literacies | Scoop.it

"School libraries today feel increasing pressure to reinvent themselves in the face of increasing financial pressures, new media technologies, and a progressively media-savvy population. Their transformation from information reserve to knowledge center has been fast underway. This paper builds on that evolution to develop an argument for media literacy education as the pedagogical foundation for the learning commons model for school libraries. This would position the school library as a dynamic media literacy learning hub, anchoring entire schools around knowledge, expression, collaboration, and creation in both virtual and physical spaces. The paper will highlight the case of Chelmsford High School Learning Commons in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, as a vibrant central space in a school for just this type of integrated learning."

Teacher/Librarian Collaboration – From a Teacher's Perspective

"The library is one of most the perfect places for beyond the classroom learning. It is the place where students are, or should be encouraged to explore other worlds, to develop their imagination, to think about the impossible. This process of inquiry is what makes learning a beautiful thing and this crucial step, the jewel, is something commonly missed when teachers plan a new unit of work. Sometimes we fail to go back to the basics. We replace simple words such as finding out and enjoyment with success and assessment. Often teachers can forget about the process and cast their eyes only to the outcome."

Being a Digital Native Isn’t Enough | Guest Blog, Scientific American Blog Network | Learning skills and literacies | Scoop.it

"Since children these days are classified as being native to all things digital, one would think they should be able to master the operation of anything with an “on” button. This mistakenly groups all technology, including video games and online search engines, in the same category. Just because a child jumps at the opportunity to program a TV to record his or her favorite shows does not mean that he or she will approach a classroom learning tool with the same zeal. In our experience, if students are not able to find answers to an Internet search in the first few results pages, they say “I can’t find it,” instead of adjusting their search, or reexamining the results in depth."

Media and Information Literacy for teachers

Media and Information Literacy education is a recently-developed pedagogical approach that take into consideration the new cultures emerging from the Information Society. Some prefer the terms Media Education, News Literacy, Digital Literacy, Information Literacy, or 21st Century Literacies. Media Studies and Media Ecology researchers world-wide are also contributing to the development of these new educational initiatives.
