National Forum on Information Literacy

National Forum on Information Literacy | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

Please spend some time with us and explore why information literacy should be a must have workforce development skill on any organizational agenda concerned with the educational, economic, and social welfare of the American people as well as our friends abroad. We have evolved into a national network of 93+ organizations and agencies in conjunction with our international alliance. Each is supportive of information literacy as a key 21st century skill. All view it as a critical pathway in advancing our nation’s educational and workforce development agendas.

Dig Deep with Project-Based Learning | Powerful Learning Practice | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it
PBL was never something I spent too much time pondering — just another way to assess learning, right? Instead of a traditional test, I allow my 4th graders to choose a project that demonstrates their learning.

BYOT – Understanding the inevitable and its implications
Wednesday, 14 March 2012
8.00 pm to 9.00 pm, Daylight Saving Time, Sydney, New South Wales

The move to have the students bring their own technology (BYOT)
into the classroom is largely inevitable. The BYOT tsunami
is fast coming over the horizon, with the pathfinders already
having made the move. In researching the new book on BYOT,
Mal has identified the implications of the development for
schooling, teaching, the choice of personal technology in
schools, school resourcing and your own operations.
BYOT is most assuredly not simply a technical development.
Mal will examine what is and is not BYOT, why all schools
will eventually use a model of BYOT, the plethora of
educational, social, organisational and economic
opportunities opened by the development and the very
considerable implications for your situation.

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.
