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?

Thanks for all of your comments and responses to my question. Perhaps the relative success of using Wibbitz depends upon the platform (if that's the right term!) upon which the web page rests. Interesting idea though.

80 Educational Alternatives to YouTube | literacy: digital, information, visual, trans., etc. | Scoop.it

Kids learn best when they see how things work, when, where and why they happen. Watching educational videos is a great way to learn because it allows kids to build a visual picture or model in their mind. The visual dimension not only helps them understand concepts better but also stimulates curiosity and encourages self-training.

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.
