Information skills in the school

Information skills in the school | Inquiry Learning across the curriculum | Scoop.it

Information skills in the school provides a framework for developing student skills to enhance information literacy. When partnered with the Quality Teaching model, it can inform professional judgments about targeted, explicit information skills teaching interventions for class units of work and cross curriculum priorities, such as literacy and integrating ICT. A guided inquiryapproach could also enrich the teaching process.

The Points About Inquiry - Moira Ekdahl

The Points About Inquiry - Moira Ekdahl | Inquiry Learning across the curriculum | Scoop.it

http://tmcanada.pbworks.com/f/The+Points+About+Inquirysz.pdf

 

"It is generally agreed amongst those who contemplate how learning will be transformed in the 21st-Century that students—well, all citizens, really—will need to become more adept, effective, ethical, and critical users of information. What students learn to do with information is likely to last longer than the specifics of the information itself." (Ekdahl, 2010 p1.)

 

This article refers to Barbara Stripling’s “Using Inquiry to Explode Myths About Learning and Libraries”. 

http://istc651.pbworks.com/f/article+about+stripling.pdf

 

Emma Crampton's insight:

This paper describes the work of the British Columbia Teacher Librarian's Association (BCTLA) Information Literacy Task Force.


I've chosen to scoop this paper for a couple of reasons. Ekdahl highlights Stripling's Inquiry Model and provides an easy to understand graphic representation of it. She also puts words to the concerns I seem to share with many Teacher-librarians regarding collaboration with staff across the curriculum when it comes to embedding skills into curriculum... Who's job is it?


These two quotes from the paper resonate with me: 

"Information literacy is not and cannot be a separate "library skills" curriculum; information skills cannot be learned in isolation of the content"

 

"Every discipline engages in inquiry that is unique but structurally similar, from scientific method to literary appreciation to writing process to historical understanding, as examples."

ERIC - Primary Sources and Inquiry Learning, School Library Media Activities Monthly, 2006-Sep

ERIC - Primary Sources and Inquiry Learning, School Library Media Activities Monthly, 2006-Sep | Inquiry Learning across the curriculum | Scoop.it
In this article, the author discusses inquiry learning and primary sources. Inquiry learning puts students in the active role of investigators. Questioning, authentic and active learning, and interactivity are a few of the characteristics of inquiry learning that put the teacher and library media specialist in the role of coaches while students are engaged in collaborative research.
Emma Crampton's insight:

This article addresses the need to develop an inquiry learning experience throughout the use of primary sources.

New structures to support Democratic Learning - Neil Hooley

New structures to support Democratic Learning - Neil Hooley | Inquiry Learning across the curriculum | Scoop.it

http://www.aeuvic.asn.au/pv_vol5_iss3.pdf

 

Emma Crampton's insight:

I have scooped this magazine from the Australian Education Union's Victorian Brach website for Neil Hooley's article 'New structures to support Democratic Learning' pages 29 - 33.

 

"Knowledge is being constantly built by the child, rather than being continuously transmitted by the teacher."

 

Hooley has introduced me to two new ideas:-

1. 'Mathetics', the art of learning, opposed to 'Pedagogy' the art of teaching put forward by Seymour Papert.

2. 'Student-as-briocleur' based on the work of Claude Levi-Strauss.

 

These ideas helped me situate my thinking about education in a more student-centred area.

Information inquiry is a basic skill for those who examine information as a science, and its principles can be applied across the K-12 curriculum. Built around reflective reviews of more than two dozen articles from School Library (Media Activities) Monthly, this helpful book shows the evolution, adoption, and application of the inquiry learning process to the school library teaching/learning environment. Four levels of inquiry—controlled, guided, open, and free—are explored in association with the emerging national Common Core curriculum and the Standards for the 21st-Century Learner from the American Association of School Librarians.

 

With the growing interest in the concept of inquiry and inquiry learning, you may find yourself needing to distinguish between the existing models and their applications. To help you do that, the book provides you with rich, historical context that clarifies the models, and it also projects future applications of inquiry and learner-centered teaching through school information literacy programs. These new applications, such as graphic inquiry, argumentation for inquiry, and the student as information scientist, offer tangible examples you can use to enrich the expanding information literacy curriculum.

Emma Crampton's insight:

This Book/eBook (you can get a free extract on Google Play) looks to be the answer to my first Inquiry question - " What are the various models of Inquiry Learning and how do they differ?"

 

As a bibliophile, a lover of books, I jump at the opportunity to get resources off-line, especially when it helps build the Teacher reference section of my library. I also find it easier to focus on reading without the interference of backlit screens, as do many colleagues with whom I will share this content.

Inquiry and 21st Century Learning -M. Pappas 2009

Emma Crampton's insight:

In this article from School Library Media Activities Monthly of May 2009, Marjorie Pappas provides a nice and succinct introduction to inquiry. She refers to various models of Inquiry Learning and explains the contrast with rote learning, a practise that unfortunately happens all too much in schools.


The following quotes nicely sum up a few points Pappas makes:

  "The emphasis on learning content is in direct contrast to the world outside the school walls where the technological capability to provide access to content, i.e., information at lightning speed, already exists. In fact, information is so prevalent that information overload is common." 

 "Educators need to make the shift to inquiry learning and, at the same time, increase the relevant use of technology as part of the learning experience."


I am using this article in aid of my own Inquiry question "How can a Teacher-librarian best support staff to integrate Inquiry Learning into their curriculum in a gentle yet effective way?". As part of my gentle and hopefully effective curriculum intervention, I will share this article with staff to open up a dialogue.
