ITN279 Information Literacy Education

Educational Event

By

Maranda Lloyd & Alexandra Cooney

setting the scene
Setting the Scene
  • Teaching new IT70 students how to evaluate websites
  • We are a university mentor group, similar to PASS
  • The IT70 students are all over 30 years of age
the il model
The IL Model

Australian and New Zealand Information Literacy (ANZIL) framework:

  • From the Australian and New Zealand Institute for Information Literacy (ANZIIL)
  • The framework is based on four key principles. The principles state that information literate people:

1. engage in independent learning through constructing new meaning,

understanding and knowledge

2. derive satisfaction and personal fulfillment from using information wisely

3. individually and collectively search for and use information for decision making and problem solving in order to address personal, professional and societal issues

4. demonstrate social responsibility through a commitment to lifelong

learning and community participation

(Bundy, 2004, p.11).

The standards of the ANZIL framework –

  • The four principles frame six key standards which reflect information literacy acquisition, understanding and use by an individual. The standards state that an information literate person:
  • Recognises the need for information and determines the nature and extent of the information needed
  • Finds the required information effectively and efficiently
  • Critically evaluates information and the information seeking process
  • Manages the information collected or generated
  • Applies prior and new information to develop new concepts or

create new understandings

  • Uses information with understanding and acknowledges the cultural,

ethical, economic, legal, and social matters surrounding the use of

information

(Bundy, 2004, p.11).

The IL Model (continued)
  • Our educational event primarily relates to the third standard in the ANZIL framework:

The information literate person critically evaluates information and the information seeking process

  • More specifically, in relation to the third standard, the information literate person:

- assesses the usefulness and relevance of the information found

- defines and applies criteria for evaluating information

- reflects on the information-seeking process and revises search strategies as

required

(Bundy, 2004, p.16).

  • In this case, IT70 students will be taught how to evaluate websites, using a set of evaluation criteria
