    NYLA Calls Upon SED to include Information Literacy in Curriculum for Common Core Standards

    Response to Curriculum RFI

    1. What are the necessary components for a standards-based curriculum model?

    A world-class, standards-based curriculum model that will aid school districts and teachers in implementation of the new P-12 New York State Standards in both English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics (including the Common Core) for all students must include an Information Fluency Continuum (IFC) led by school librarians. In addition to subject-specific skills, every model curriculum should have embedded information fluency skills that cut across all disciplines and include inquiry, critical thinking, literacy, technology, and digital citizenship skills. An exemplary model of a K-12 Information Fluency Continuum, complete with grade-by-grade benchmark skills and formative assessments at each grade level, has been developed by the New York City School Library System:

    An IFC will provide New York state students with:

    Success in college, career, and participation in democratic society: a standards-based curriculum model for New York State must prepare students for success in college and career as well as active participation in our democratic society
    Development of understanding and ability to learn on own: the curriculum must focus on essential content and skills, with the expectation that students will go beyond the accumulation of knowledge to the development of understanding and the ability to learn on their own

  • sues often result from "filter failure." In this session we will explore a variety of strategies to more effectively filter information we share with students and receive from them online. We'll also explore ways we can use web-based audio recording tools to provide personalized and efficient feedback to our students for assessment
    Many report being overwhelmed with information.  Call it the information flood or infoglut, the result is the same.  You feel underwater and wonder if you'll ever make sense of it all.  As you are seeing now, much of E-Learning for Educators is about learning to filter information. Diigo is a way to do this.  Powersearching is a way to do this. Understanding and using 'tags' (short keywords that capture the essence of the info's meaning) is a way to do this.  EVENTUALLY you'll learn to build and control those filters. This is part of becoming an online teacher.  It's also part of living in the 21st century.  Wes Fryer is one of my 'filters'.  I've found his work to be consistently interesting.  By following an experts thinking, you create a filter that will help you make sense of all this information!

  • Among the more memorable people I met at last week's ISTE conference in Denver is a renegade technology director from Racine, Wisconsin. Just a few months after his promotion from network manager to director of information systems of the Racine Unified School District last summer, Tim Peltz made a revolutionary move: he removed the firewalls that had blocked students from many parts of the Internet. He didn't just remove a brick here and there. He tore those walls completely down.

    Digital Information Fluency Model

    DIF CircleDIF FAQs

    Digital Information Fluency (DIF) is the ability to find, evaluate and use digital information effectively, efficiently and ethically. DIF involves knowing how digital information is different from print information; having the skills to use specialized tools for finding digital information; and developing the dispositions needed in the digital information environment. As teachers and librarians develop these skills and teach them to students, students will become better equipped to achieve their information needs.
