Our goal is to collaboratively create a K-12 Information Literacy skills matrix with example projects that can be used as a reference for schools. We invite independent schools to share any resources they have created in house as well as to link to external sources.
Standards to considerEdit
- Big 6 - see tech-specific matrixand article
- AASL Learning Standards
- ISTE - NETS - note: these are under revision
- 21st Century Skills
- Types of 21st Century Skills Literacies from NCREL
- Information Literacy Links
Points to PonderEdit
How can technology help:
- Ignite curiosity and feed the spirit of inquiry?
- Encourage clear, effective, and creative expression?
- Foster community through communication and collaboration?
- Engage a variety of learning styles?
- Collect and analyze information and use it to make informed decisions? (From Jamie Britto )
