Google Custom Search - Power Searching & Information Literacy Skills Instruction - 4 views

  •  
    A tool for teacher-librarians in Grand Bahama - In the CSE Power Searching & Information Literacy, I wanted to do something practical that teacher-librarians in Grand Bahama would find interesting and useful in their schools. Of course, I got carried away while searching because there is so much helpful information available. I'm sure I went over the limit in the number of sites added. During the search process, I discovered sites that had not been updated since 2002 or earlier, I checked the links and surprisingly many were still active. This CSE includes resources for effective searching, fun learning stuff, Internet search skills & techniques, information literacy curriculum standards, lesson plans, articles about library instruction, bibliographies, and links. Some sites from the UK and Canada were also added.

e-Learning Online: Website Investigator: See you at NECC 2009! - 0 views

  • Website Investigator: Information Forensics Goes to School
  • The purpose of this session is to provide participants with an understanding of efficient methods for evaluating online information and to demonstrate effective ways to teach these information fluency skills in classrooms.The new generation of NETS standards for students (ISTE, 2007), is based on the premise that efficacy and productivity depends on students’ abilities to conduct research and manage digital information fluently. An essential skill is the ability to evaluate information from a variety of sources and media.This session directly addresses this information fluency standard by helping participants…1. Understand the role of investigation (information forensics) in evaluating information:• Two types of searching: how investigation differs from speculation;• Determining when investigative searching is necessary and when it is not;• Effective means of finding critical information with limited clues;• Using specialized search engines and browsing techniques to track down information;• Analyzing results to determine credibility of the source and content.2. Observe effective methods for helping students exercise speculative search skills:• Off-line 'readiness' activities;• Group and individual Search Challenges;• Interactive tutorial games;• Think-aloud searches;• Evaluation reporting;• Group discussion about credibility.

ASCD Inservice: The Curse of the Digitally Illiterate - 0 views

  • In his article in the February Educational Leadership ("Learning with Blogs and Wikis"), Bill Ferriter argues that digital tools like RSS feeds and aggregators help educators advance their professional learning. But first, some teachers need to join the ranks of the literate
  • Sadly, digital illiteracy is more common that you might think in schools. There are hundreds of teachers that haven't yet mastered the kinds of tools that have become a part of the fabric of learning—and life—for our students. We ban cell phones, prohibit text messaging, and block every Web application that our students fall in love with. We see gaming as a corrupting influence in the lives of children and remain convinced that Google is making us stupid.

    A solid and timely article about the professional responsibility all educators have to become digitally literate. The comments on this blog are particularly good. You get a real feel for what's happening in the trenches
