Information Literacy: Finding What You Need, Needing What You Find
We have an astounding level of accessibility to information. In many cases our access to information can occur across a myriad of technological devices including a computer, a table device and a mobile device. Given the mass quantities of information available, it is vital for us to develop strategies for not only finding what we need, but also being able to effectively filter out what we don't. This session will focus on identifying appropriate strategies for information literacy and why these skill sets are critical for both our students and us. We will also identify appropriate methodologies for applying critical thinking skills to evaluate content.
