TRAILS is a knowledge assessment with multiple-choice questions targeting a variety of information literacy skills based on 3rd, 6th, 9th, and 12th grade standards. This Web-based system was developed to provide an easily accessible and flexible tool for school librarians and teachers to identify strengths and weaknesses in the information-seeking skills of their students. There is no charge for using TRAILS.

WORLDWIDE MULTI-LINGUAL INFORMATION LITERACY RESOURCES

WORLDWIDE MULTI-LINGUAL INFORMATION LITERACY RESOURCES

 

Message distributed with permission of Dr. Forest Woody Horton, Jr.

 

We are very grateful to Professor Albert K. Boekhorst for permission to use his beautiful variation of the official international Information Literacy logo, above, which
was originally designed by the young Cuban artist Edgar Luy Perez, who won a contest sponsored by IFLA and chaired by a panel of judges organized by Jesus Lau of Mexico. As of mid April 2012, the term “Information Literacy” has been translated into about 50 different languages, and hopefully we can add more languages as additional translations of the term become available. Because the term “Information Literacy” is still evolving, there is not yet a single, standard definition or term that is used by all of the countries in the world which speak the same or a very similar language, such as
Spanish or French. For example, in the case of Spanish, different terms are preferred by different Spanish speaking countries, as, for example, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Spain, and the remainder. And in the case of French, different terms are preferred by French speaking countries such as Haiti, Canada, Francophone West African countries, and France, Belgium, Luxembourg and others in Europe. Not to mention disagreements among the experts as to what term is preferable. Nor to mention dialect differences. Therefore, Professor Boekhorst will periodically revisit the terms employed if and when a single, standard term emerges for a given language. So, viewers may well see terms in the logo which are similar, but not precisely identical terms, for the same language.

If you do not see your language as part of the above logo, or you wish to suggest a more current, standard term, please contact Prof. Boekhorst at albertkb@gmail.com. Also, you can download the latest logo version, as well as a cross-reference table called “terms overview” explaining which language each term represents, at http://www.ifla.org/en/information-literacy/projects.

InfoLitIndia | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

The Library Media Centre at Kendriya Vidyalaya Pattom, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, has launched a project on information literacy for young learners, InfoLit India.

The project aims at developing the essential 21st century literacy skills (mainly Internet, media and library literacies) in the students and teachers through nstruction, training and research. It is conceived on a basic information literacy curriculum which was developed according to the standard skill sets required in an Indian school educational environment.

The project has three main components.

1. Internet Literacy ("Web challenge")

2. Media literacy ("Media matters")

3. Library Literacy ("Face-a-book")

The project will select a group of students and carry out a planned Information literacy programme for the coming one year. The impact and effectiveness will be evaluated through various statistical procedures. The findings will be used to develop a national

information literacy programme for Kendriya Vidyalayas across the country.

For more details, please log on to the project website, http://infolitindia.org

It is unclear how they determine the validity of information gathered, or whether or not validity is even a concern.
