Information Literacy and Early Learners
Robinson, Laura Eisenberg
Library Media Connection, v27 n2 p10-11 Oct 2008
Information literacy is becoming more prominent in K-12 education and continues to be a vital part of university-level studies. In today's complex society, it's not enough to be able to read, write, and do math. People continuously need to identify and recognize their information needs, locate necessary resources, use the essential information appropriately, and critically evaluate this information. Even young children tackle tasks, make decisions, and solve problems on an academic and personal level every day. Information literacy instruction needs to begin with the youngest learners and information literacy updates should continue throughout life as information needs develop and change. In this article, the author discusses the Super3 and Big6 information problem solving processes that help students to develop the skills and understandings they need to find, process, and use information effectively and efficiently.
