Information Fluency in the Classroom: Evaluation and Critical Thinking

Information Fluency in the Classroom: Evaluation and Critical Thinking | Källkritik och informationskompetens | Scoop.it

I will be presenting along with Dr. Carl Heine of IMSA on Monday, 6/25/2012, 11:00am–12:00pm, SDCC 2.  If you are attending ISTE 2012, please join us! ~ Dennis

 

This session demonstrates effective information fluency instruction using free modules from 21st Century Information Fluency (http://21cif.com). The focus is on areas of critical weakness: searching for the "right" database, evaluating the credibility of information using information about authorship, date and external references.

The Information Diet - Introduction

"http://informationdiet.com -- Introduction to the concepts behind The Information Diet, a new book by Clay Johnson. The Information Diet makes the case that it's time we started being as selective with the information we consume as we are the food that we eat, then describes what a healthy diet and healthy habits look like."

Building Good Search Skills: What Students Need to Know

Building Good Search Skills: What Students Need to Know | Källkritik och informationskompetens | Scoop.it

The Internet has made researching subjects deceptively effortless for students — or so it may seem to them at first. Truth is, students who haven’t been taught the skills to conduct good research will invariably come up short.

Is There a Difference Between Critical Thinking and Information Literacy? | Weiner | Journal of Information Literacy

Is There a Difference Between Critical Thinking and Information Literacy? | Weiner | Journal of Information Literacy | Källkritik och informationskompetens | Scoop.it

By John M Weiner

 

This paper investigates the similarities and differences between two important ideas in information processing and knowledge utilisation. Those ideas are [critical thinking] and [information literacy]. The two phrases are shown in brackets to indicate that the two words involved in each idea are not arbitrarily combined but have been coupled by authors to represent a single entity or a focus for development of concepts describing the characteristics involved. By exploring terms related to this couplet from the same sentence, the meaning of each of the central ideas can be expanded. The education, library science, and health science literature were used in this study, which analysed 8745 articles dealing with [critical thinking] and 8201 reports dealing with [information literacy] included in either ERIC or PubMed from 2000-2009.

 

The findings showed that combinations of terms (i.e. ideas) such as [information & literacy & related term] or [critical & thinking & related term], when organised based on Bloom’s Taxonomy of Learning (Bloom 1956), clarified the similarities and differences between the two central ideas. [Information literacy] was involved in all of the cognitive functions suggested by Bloom. This finding is consistent with the definitions of [information literacy] that relate it to lifelong learning and effective decision-making. In addition, the ideas describing [information literacy] were consistent with actions and perceptions that were more public and standardised than those associated with [critical thinking].

 

This suggests that [information literacy] and its associated procedures could significantly augment current instruction in [critical thinking] and indeed, the possibility has been explored by some authors in the current literature. A merging of the two ideas would involve [information literacy] providing tools and techniques in the processing and utilisation of knowledge and [critical thinking] supplying the particulars and interpretations associated with a specific discipline. This type of integration could lead to instructional programs similar in concept and application to those in research methodology where methods from statistics are integrated with the techniques and skills associated with a specific discipline. The development of a curriculum of this type would change functions and perceptions from private, individualised mentation, now associated with [critical thinking], to a more easily learned and practiced process suitable across the breadth of disciplines.
