How Should We Teach Information Literacy in Schools?

How Should We Teach Information Literacy in Schools? | School Libraries around the world | 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?

Information literacy: the work of librarians past and present | Reading, Writing, Research | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it
More information is available than most people can imagine. That's nothing new. Librarians have always shown people how to find it, evaluate it, and use it. Finding particular information and knowing how to evaluate its reliability is as difficult as ever.

Youth and Digital Media: From Credibility to Information Quality | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

Building upon a process- and context-oriented information quality framework, this paper seeks to map and explore what we know about the ways in which young users of age 18 and under search for information online, how they evaluate information, and how their related practices of content creation, levels of new literacies, general digital media usage, and social patterns affect these activities.

Great info graphic from Easybib! It's a bit of a sales-pitch, but the data is telling.

"First, it is forward looking, drawing on present trends toward the convergence of radio, television, Internet, newspapers, books, digital archives and libraries into one platform – thereby, for the first time, presenting MIL in a holistic manner. Second, it is specifically designed with teachers in mind and for integration into the formal teacher education system, thus launching a catalytic process which should reach and build capacities of millions of young people."

Mobile information literacy

While at the reference desk, have you ever had a student thrust her phone at you and ask, “Do you have this book?” Or, while teaching an information literacy class, have you had to tell students to put away their cellphones? It seems that our students can’t live without their smartphones anymore. But who can blame them? Most of us have grown accustomed to having information available at our fingertips. There are hundreds of thousands of apps available that let users do everything from looking up restaurant reviews to accessing Wikipedia in a mobile environment. As an increasing number of mobile apps and Web sites are being built by database vendors, such as EBSCO and WilsonWeb, it’s time to leverage students’ addiction to smartphones and teach them information literacy in a mobile setting.
