Welcome to the Information Literacy Resource Bank. This central repository contains bite-sized information literacy learning resources for Cardiff University staff to integrate into teaching materials as and when required.

There is a selection of activities, quizzes, diagrams and cartoons as well as short ready-made self-paced tutorials on a range of essential information literacy topics such as citing references and plagiarism. New resources will continue to be added over time.

You may link to any of the resources on this web site or download and seamlessly incorporate them into your learning and teaching materials. Full details on how to embed them into Learning Central, PowerPoint and Word are provided. Subject Librarians in INSRV can also suggest ways of integrating the resources into programmes of study.

Vicki Mast's curator insight, September 13, 2013 8:24 AM

I just downloaded the free version which looks good, but may have to upgrade. The features look well worth the $3.99 price. You can move & resize your drawn objects, zoom in/out, etc. If you're working on creating "flipped classroom" videos, or how-to tutorials this may be what you need. Check out their website and user guide for the details.

What is digital literacy?

What is digital literacy? | literacy: digital, information, visual, trans., etc. | Scoop.it

Digital literacy is the topic that made the ETMOOC learning space so irresistible to me… I think as educators we spout off about wanting our students to be digitally literate, but not many of us (myself included) have a firm grasp about what that actually means, and quite a number of us are still attempting to become digitally literate ourselves.

7 Ways Teachers Can Create Videos without Installing any Software ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

7 Ways Teachers Can Create Videos without Installing any Software ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | literacy: digital, information, visual, trans., etc. | Scoop.it

"Today while I was reading a short article on the importance of videos in education, it dawned on me to compile a list of some of the best video creation tools to share with you here. I do have a separate section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning where I have been featuring a plethora of video tools . But today's collection is somehow different not only because it contains the cream of the crop but also because these tools are all web based.

All of the web tools below do not require any software installation and you can work on them right from your browser. I am pretty sure you will find them very useful particularly  when working on video projects with your students. Please have a look and share with us if we have missed any important title. Enjoy!"

Students could create use one of these to make their own "character" commercial or the teacher could use it to introduce the "monthly" character trait.

Integration of Information Literacy into the Curriculum: Changing Students’ Relationships with the School Librarian

Motivated by a shared inquiry question, a team of librarians at Deerfield High School (Illinois) gathered data to support a push to integrate information literacy skills into the curriculum, and developed a fruitful collaboration with other departments resulting in a co-taught Medieval narrative project. Among other important outcomes: a change in student perceptions about the role of school librarians.

How Should We Teach Information Literacy in Schools?

How Should We Teach Information Literacy in Schools? | literacy: digital, information, visual, trans., etc. | Scoop.it

When the majority of information moves from print to digital form, we need a new set of critical skills in order to find what we need and use if properly. Many students get to college without having learned much in the way of information literacy, although professors often expect it was already taught. How should schools teach kids about finding good materials for research? About plagiarism? About finding authoritative sources online?
