Today’s learners can use a variety of technologies to access knowledge resources and interact globally with people. These interactions create a digital society that affords learners opportunities for education, entertainment and social interaction. Most of today’s children are comfortable using technology, but may not use it efficiently, effectively or appropriately. Teachers can create learning experiences that foster specific digital literacy skills. They can also help learners understand their roles and responsibilities as responsible digital citizens who can participate in the knowledge economy.

Information Literacy in the Wild
Rating

In this text, you will see information literacy examined from the perspective of students in the School of Education and the School of Information at the University of Michigan. The diversity of these perspectives contribute to new understandings and realizations as their divergent backgrounds, experiences, aspirations, and influences, both in libraries and 'in the wild', are examined in common. Their findings lend a fresh perspective to the existing body of literature on information literacy.
