Being a Digital Native Isn’t Enough | Guest Blog, Scientific American Blog Network | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

"Since children these days are classified as being native to all things digital, one would think they should be able to master the operation of anything with an “on” button. This mistakenly groups all technology, including video games and online search engines, in the same category. Just because a child jumps at the opportunity to program a TV to record his or her favorite shows does not mean that he or she will approach a classroom learning tool with the same zeal. In our experience, if students are not able to find answers to an Internet search in the first few results pages, they say “I can’t find it,” instead of adjusting their search, or reexamining the results in depth."

"Critical inquiry skills are among the most important in a world in which the half-life of information is rapidly shrinking. These days, what you know is almost less important than what you can find out."  The ability to evaluate and filter the information is now being suggested as the significant skill that we all need to be improving.

"USA | If you have not sat down yet with your downloaded copy of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) with a highlighter in your hand, it’s time. And if you have, it’s time to read it again and for all of us to change our vocabulary. School librarians teach Common Core skills."
