And what about our students?

Preference for natural rather than

controlled language;

Tendency to use simple search strategies;

Unsophisticated mental map of the Internet;

They do not review information retrieved

from online databases for relevance; did unnecessary searches when they had already obtained the information

required;

Very little evidence that the Google generation is fundamentally different;

Little improvement in information literacy capabilities, evaluating & authority of sources.

Slide35 l.jpg

Lonely, Nervous, Brave, Determined, Sassy

Daughter of parents who filled their house with music

Music must have filled her loneliness when her father died

Moved to New York for a better life.

Who loved the night magic of Harlem,

Who loved the celebrities and begging for autographs with her friends

Who really loved singing and scatting

Who loved her Aunt that took care of her as a child.

Who felt loss, when her mother died

Who felt anger when she was put in an orphanage

Who felt trapped in those walls but they couldn’t keep her down

because she felt the pull of her song

and the night magic of Harlem.

Who felt nervous and fear at auditions

Who feared not being able to sing because she had no one to care for her

Who feared dying from diabetes and possibly going blind,

Who feared whom she would pass her singing crown down to

Who wanted to see someone take over her singing crown

Who would have liked to have spent more time with her late parents

Who wanted to work with the best bands

Who changed the world of jazz and swing

Who was very proud of her awards and achievements

She was “The First Lady Of Song”;

she was “Sassy” and a Legend of Jazz

Born in Virginia, grew up in New York,

adopted by the world.

Ella was great

Fitzgerald
