SEEK! A game for Information Literacy Instruction

SEEK! A game for Information Literacy Instruction | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it

"I'm Andrew Walsh, an Academic Librarian and National Teaching Fellow.

 

I want to get students excited about developing their information literacy, but let's face it - that's a losing battle... Instead, how about making information literacy instruction as interesting, active and engaging as possible and make sure some deep learning takes place?

 

Once of the ways I've been trying to do this recently is through games. This crowdfunding attempt is to help develop a non-digital, quick and easy to use card game that can be used in one-shot, 50 minute information literacy sessions..."

The Keyword Blog: 21cif: Operator Search Challenge | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it

Here's a recently revised online game to teach the use of operators when searching for information on the internet. The game lives within a controlled search field where using operators is the only way to solve the challenge. This is just one of many free online training games promoting information fluency. 

 

Try it! You'll be challenged!.

Making Information Literacy Fun - Murder at Grim Marsh House

Making Information Literacy Fun -  Murder at Grim Marsh House | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it

"We all want to make our information literacy sessions with groups memorable. At the CILIPS Autumn Gathering Chris Morrison, the School Librarian at Linlithgow Academy shared his programmes which introduce S1s and S2s to the skills needed for using the library and information sources. These are not ordinary library sessions though - the pupils are challenged to solve murder mysteries and discover the whereabouts of lost historical artefacts such as the Blue Diamond, which went missing in the French Revolution, or Joan of Arc's standard."
