Information as a Second Language Enabling Data Literacy

Information as a Second Language Enabling Data Literacy | Learning Literacies | Scoop.it
Digital society demands of its citizens data literacy, developed for competitive advantage and agility. Data and analytics leaders must follow the example of English as a Second Language (ESL) and treat information as the new second language of business, government, communities and our lives.

Digital and Information Literacy Framework

Digital and Information Literacy Framework | Learning Literacies | Scoop.it
What is digital literacy and how is it different from information literacy?

Digital literacy includes the ability to find and use information (otherwise known as information literacy) but goes beyond this to encompass communication, collaboration and teamwork, social awareness in the digital environment, understanding of e-safety and creation of new information. Both digital and information literacy are underpinned by critical thinking and evaluation.
What does the DIL framework cover and how is it structured?

For the purposes of the DIL framework, digital literacy refers to the skills, competences, and dispositions of OU students using digital technologies to achieve personal, study, and work-related goals. The framework describes five ‘stages of development’ of digital literacy skills, competences and dispositions and maps them against the ‘levels’ of OU study.

Publication: A Field Guide to “Fake News” and Other Information Disorders | Learning Literacies | Scoop.it
Last week saw the launch of A Field Guide to “Fake News” and Other Information Disorders, a new free and open access resource to help students, journalists and researchers investigate misleading content, memes, trolling and other phenomena associated with recent debates around “fake news”.

The field guide responds to an increasing demand for understanding the interplay between digital platforms, misleading information, propaganda and viral content practices, and their influence on politics and public life in democratic societies.

Some of The Best Academic Search Engines for Teachers and Student Researchers | Learning Literacies | Scoop.it
When it comes to searching for  niche-specific content Google search engine is not the best option out there. Although Google can be a good starting point from which you can delve deeper into the content area you are searching but you can save much more time by using content-specific search engines. In today’s post, we are sharing with you some examples of academic search engines student researchers and teachers can use to search for, find and access scholarly content. We are only featuring the most popular titles, but you can always find other options to add to the list.

What Universities Can Do About Digital Literacy in the Age of Fake News

What Universities Can Do About Digital Literacy in the Age of Fake News | Learning Literacies | Scoop.it
You would know the difference between a “real” news story and a story written for or by an advertiser, right? Especially when a story is labeled “advertisement” right there at the top of your screen. Even if that label was something murkier like “BrandVoice” and pushed down to the bottom of the story, most of us would recognize sponsored content as advertising, right?

The Boundaries of 'Information' in Information Literacy | Library Babel Fish

The Boundaries of 'Information' in Information Literacy | Library Babel Fish | Learning Literacies | Scoop.it
Academic libraries spend a lot of time and energy thinking about student learning. A 2016 Ithaka survey of library deans and directors indicate that they perceive the most important role for the library is “helping undergraduate students develop research, critical analysis, and information literacy skills,” with “supporting and facilitating faculty teaching activities” coming in as a close second. A recent round up of projects in the Assessment in Action projects that are intended to demonstrate the value of libraries do so almost exclusively in terms of student learning (or, to use the new buzz phrase, “student success” which isn’t exactly the same, but seems to please administrators more). Countless hours are being spent on interpreting and implementing the new Framework for Information Literacy which has some ambitious ideas about what students should learn

Project Information Literacy | Information Literacy Weblog | Learning Literacies | Scoop.it

In December 2013 The US Project Information Literacy published a research report about first-year university students and information literacy. It is based on interviews with 35  first year students (from 6 institutions), a survey of school and university students (all in the USA) and analysis of library resources."In this study, we investigate the challenges today's freshmen face, and the information-seeking strategies they develop, use, and adapt as they make the transition from high school to college and begin to complete college research assignments."

UK Survey of Academics 2012| Information Literacy Weblog

UK Survey of Academics 2012| Information Literacy Weblog | Learning Literacies | Scoop.it

Last month results of survey of British academics were published. The questionnaire had 3,498 responses. Responses are often presented by broad disciplinary groupings (Humanities./ Social sciences/ Science/ Medicine and veterinary), as they did find disciplinary differences. There were some questions about research (e.g. motivations for choosing research subjects, use of digital tools for quantitative research (though not qualitative, oddly), whether they collaborated in research) and also some questions about the use of technologies in teaching (though I think the options in these questions were a bit limited). There were questions about how the academics started a subject or known item search, preferences between print and digital forms, how they kept up with new developments in the field, use of digital tools etc.

EU Expert Group on Fake News Releases Final Report

EU Expert Group on Fake News Releases Final Report | Learning Literacies | Scoop.it
On Mar. 12, the European Commission released the final report of its independent High Level Expert Group on Fake News and Online Disinformation (the Group), a group of 39 experts from different sectors and countries that was convened earlier this year and tasked with putting forward strategies to counter disinformation. The report, which is one part of the Commission’s efforts to formulate a new strategy to tackle disinformation more effectively, calls for a “multi-dimensional approach to disinformation” and emphasizes that there is no single root cause or solution to such a complicated problem.

The Ultimate Guide to Information Literacy: How to Spot Fake News in 2018 - | Learning Literacies | Scoop.it
Back in the days when fake news was screaming about aliens visiting our planet or people coming back from death, it was easy to avoid publishers with rubbish information. Nowadays, an increased access to communication and media has led to the flood of false or useless information. As a result, even those people who want to avoid all this mess are not successful in spotting fraud.

News Literacy for All

News Literacy for All | Learning Literacies | Scoop.it

Veronica Arellano Douglas writes: "I’m not really here for discussions about “fake news,” but I’m all for critical information literacy, including critical news literacy, and so are a group of librarians at Washtenaw Community College’s Bailey Library. Meghan Rose, Martha Stuit, and Amy Lee presented a poster recently at the Michigan Academic Library Association’s annual conference on their recent efforts to overhaul a News Literacy Libguide and use it as a springboard for instruction."

The librarians at Washtenaw Community College are awesome! Their presentation can easily be adapted for secondary school students, and everything is shared via Google Drive. I shamelessly admit to coveting those buttons!

Fake News and Filter Bubbles: Teaching Web Literacy Concepts at Brooklyn Public Library

Fake News and Filter Bubbles: Teaching Web Literacy Concepts at Brooklyn Public Library | Learning Literacies | Scoop.it
My first big assignment in 2017 (aside from successfully pulling off our annual conference) was to create a training plan for a 3-hour session for librarians at Brooklyn Public Library on web literacy. I was grateful for the input of BPL’s Director of Customer Experience on shaping the plan for the day, and thrilled as always to work with one of my web literacy partners in crime to make the training a success.

Planting the seeds of a digital literacy education program

Planting the seeds of a digital literacy education program | Learning Literacies | Scoop.it

The main objective of the library sessions is to increase students’ awareness of the library as an important part of university life, and to help them develop some digital literacy skills along the way.

 

The sessions will be based on gaming principles, with the students organised into teams to complete challenges involving the use of digital technologies to earn points or rewards. Each team will have an ipad mini, and use a range of apps to complete the challenges, which will have them moving around the library, learning about the library as a virtual and physical space, and completing activities which teach them information literacy skills related to searching, evaluating, managing and sharing information.
