Information Literacy : Educational Practices, Emerging Technologies & Student Learning Outcomes Hardback
Edited by Jessie Collier
Assisting students in locating relevant information remains especially critical in the digital era.
As Rempel and Cossarini (2013) remind us the "quantity of conveniently available information has made students less inclined to seek out" information in the library.
Information literacy is necessary so that people can continue lifelong learning.
It is recognised that basic library skills and IT (Information Technology) skills are the foundations of information literacy competences.
Especially for children, who are novices in library use, it is essential to understand how to use the library and how to obtain sufficient knowledge through library materials and information resources on the Internet.
Inquiry based learning takes into account the complexity of interrelated knowledge building and strives to provide opportunities for teachers and students for teamwork, building, testing, and reflection on their learning.
This book discusses how emerging technologies influence information literacy, and it examines student learning outcomes and educational practices in school systems.
