Information and Digital Literacies in a Kindergarten Classroom: An I-LEARN Case Study
Tecce DeCarlo, Mary Jean; Grant, Allen; Lee, Vera J.; Neuman, Delia
Early Childhood Education Journal, v46 n3 p265-275 May 2018
This case study, part of a larger qualitative research project, involved 24 kindergarteners and their teacher in the design, development, and evaluation of a research project built around the I-LEARN model (Neuman, "Learning in information-rich environments: I-LEARN and the construction of knowledge in the 21st Century." Springer, New York, 2011b). I-LEARN is a six-step learning model (Identify, Locate, Evaluate, Apply, Reflect and kNow) designed to guide research for twenty first-century learning. The objectives of the study were both to improve the digital and information literacies of the participants and to validate the I-LEARN model for use in an early childhood classroom. The findings have implications for information literacy, digital literacy, and developmentally appropriate practices.
