Information Literacy

Standard

I found the readings for topic four very good for a number of reasons. Firstly, they were obviously extremely helpful for assignment one when attempting to define an information literate school community. Secondly, I had no idea that the term can encompass such a broad range of meanings. I was also unaware of the fact that the term is constantly changing/evolving with the advent of new technologies (though in hindsight that makes a lot of sense.) I think the Langford article made getting my head around the term ‘information literacy’ much clearer for me.

As a result of this and working on assignment one I realise that I need to improve my own information literacy skills. I am now making steps in my classroom (and in my professional development) to try and teach students to be more critical receivers of the broad range of information available to them.
