Why K-12 schools are failing by not teaching SEARCH | The Thinking Stick

Why K-12 schools are failing by not teaching SEARCH | The Thinking Stick | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

“I’m sorry the K-12 system has failed your students….they should know how to search by the time they get to college. But seeing that they don’t, until your students come prepared, you are going to have to pick up the slack.”

I then spent 30 minutes teaching university faculty how to search….because guess what……they didn’t know how to either. Which is exactly what I’ve come across with K-12 teachers, which helps to explain the unpreparedness of our students. So who is teaching our teachers the skills they need to teach our students?

October 22-25, 2013,Istanbul,Turkey

ECIL is Organized by the Department of Information Management of Hacettepe University and Department of Information and Communication Sciences of Zagreb University.

Keynotes


Paul G. Zurkowski is the originator of the term "information literacy". He first used this term in 1974 in a proposal to the US National Commission on Libraries and Information Science. At the time he coined the term he was president of the Information Industry Association. His vision for information literacy skill development is not library centric, but advocates for a universal approach in its delivery across all trades, occupations and professions. Zurkowski views information literacy skills as a critical stepping stone in the creation of wealth, a key element for national economic development.

Dr Christine Bruce is Professor in theInformationSystemsSchool, Science and Engineering Faculty, QUT,Australia.  She has an extensive research and publication profile in information literacy and higher education teaching and learning. Dr. Bruce has a special focus on information literacy and learning. She regularly facilitates workshops and delivers speeches on information literacy. In 2010 Dr. Bruce received the Library Board of Queensland Award for her contributions to information literacy research and education.

50 Search Engines You Probably Don’t Use Yet

50 Search Engines You Probably Don’t Use Yet | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it
Students, teachers and the public turn to their librarians for help researching everything from technology to genealogy to homework help and lesson plans. Even if your library is equipped with subscriptions and memberships to top of the line databases and online journals, you’ve probably had to get creative during a patron’s requested search for something unfamiliar.

Although the concept of Information Literacy was born in a business environment (Zurkowski 1974) it became mainly the domain of librarians in an educational environment. At IFLA 2012 in Helsinki there was a poster presentation on an interesting project in a Brasilian petrol company by Marilda M. Coelho, Maria I. Cabral da Franca and Tatiana N.Cosmo.

It may be ironic that it takes significant search skills to find the wealth of information about informaiton fluency packed into the 21CIF website. To open doors to content, this page will introduce you to hyperlinked content that will help you to teach students how to locate, evaluate, and ethically use digital information.

Worldwide Information Literacy resources available in 42 languages | United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization

Worldwide Information Literacy resources available in 42 languages | United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it
Lourense Das's insight:

From Prof. Woody F. Horton: Colleagues, it is with a great deal of both gratitude and pride that I call your attention to our ePub announced today by UNESCO entitled "Overview of Information Literacy Resources Worldwide."  Many of you either contributed one of the 42 language lists that are contained in this publication,or advised me on the content and format. The publication is available both in ePub format and as a pdf file.  I will be back in touch with you to solicit your ideas for how to use this tool to help ordinary citizens worldwide, who are not fluent in English, and would prefer to search for information literacy resources in their own native languages.  If you are a member of this Google Discussion group but do not see your native language in the database
in the ePub, please communicate with me because we intend that as many
languages as feasible be added to the database going forward, and also put in place a tool so that the "starting entries" can be kept up-to-date, perhaps using a wiki. We would welcome volunteers to prepare lists of IL resources in languages which are still missing from the database.

Here in brief is the UNESCO announcement:

"WEEKLY NEWSLETTER SERVICE

E-pub brings together worldwide Information Literacy resources
available in 42 languages

15.02.2013 - A collection of Information Literacy (IL) Resources from
around the world is now available on UNESCO’s website in e-Pub and PDF
formats. The publication titled “Overview of Information Literacy
Resource Worldwide” is divided into 42 language lists and includes
selected resources – from websites, books, journals and other kinds of
publications – that were provided by contributors from different
countries and institutions and compiled by Dr Forest Woody Horton Jr."

A more complete UNESCO article describing the publication background
and content appears if you click on the 3rd link below, and the pdf
and ePub file links appear on the right side of the screen on the
webpage containing the full article, under "Files."  Also if you wish
you can contact Irmgarda Kasinskaite, the senior UNESCO staff
programme officer in charge of the IL programs of UNESCO.

Intergenerational Literacies: texto techno

Intergenerational Literacies: texto  techno | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

The IFLA Literacy and Reading and Information Literacy Sections are seeking proposals for a joint programme to be held at the IFLA Conference in Singapore in August 2013.

The challenge of new information and learning landscape can lead to all sorts of information gaps. One of them is a gap between texto and techno generations which can cause intergenerational isolation and separation. The program will showcase innovative and effective library programmes that intend to bridge this gap.

Proposals are requested for as many as ten tabletop presentations which will be given simultaneously. After an opening plenary keynote address, audience members will rotate to three different fifteen-minute presentations of their choice. Presenters will therefore be asked to repeat their presentation three times for three different sets of people.

Proposals chosen for presentation will be specific about how libraries and/or associations have tackled issues related to texto and techno literacies in their particular setting, thus developing intergenerational literacies, dialogue, digital inclusion and social cohesion. They should be grounded in theory, research, and/or practical applications. Because these projects will be presented in an informal, small group setting, speakers should plan some visual accompaniment such as a poster that can be set up on the table. Presenters may also want to bring brochures or flyers to hand out. People submitting successful proposals will be asked to write a brief paper summarizing their library programme or project for publication in the IFLA Proceedings. All chosen presenters will be listed in the official Conference programme.

Proposals in English are required, and should provide the following information:

Name and institution of speaker(s)

Brief biographical information

Proposal title

Brief (300 to 500 word) description of project and presentation format

Language of presentation

Proposals should be sent to Elena Corradini (Secretary of the Literacy and Reading Section) at ecorradini67@gmail.com by November 30, 2012. Please indicate "IFLA Proposal WLIC 2013" on the subject line. Finalists will be notified by December 15, 2012, and will be expected to submit final versions of their papers in one of the official IFLA languages by May 15, 2013.

For more information, please contact Leikny Haga Indergaard (Chair of Literacy and Reading Section) at: Leikny.Indergaard@bergen.kommune.no

Please note that it is the speakers’ responsibility to find funding for their participation.

10 Free Tools for Everyday Research to Teach Search Skills | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

"As educators we are faced with the challenge of teaching students to efficiently use the Internet to find and use information. Searching for information and making sense of it is a process that involves critical thinking and it is an important skill. Fortunately, there are many free digital tools available to help students efficiently sift through an overwhelming abundance of web content to find the relevant and reliable information they need. This post will explore some digital resources to provide educators with tools to help all students become savvy searchers and independent learners."

 

Susan Oxnevad shares a wealth of other tools and resources to teach students how to search.

It focuses on the skills we need by illustrating them in the 5 A’s—Ask, Acquire, Analyze, Apply, and Assess. We’ll use these as a foundation for strategies you can use to find what you’re really looking for in the age of InfoWhelm.
