The current state of K-16 IL collaboration in GA:

Scattered local efforts by librarians:

Athens, Rome, Carrollton:

  • K-16 librarians meetings/workshops to assess the state of IL instruction in our localities.
  • Separate but complementary ACRL/AASL standards
  • Vision, goals, teaching methods and challenges virtually identical
overall vision
Overall Vision:
  • IL as a lifelong learning skill that is acquired gradually, grade-by-grade and can’t be taught in scattershot fashion.
  • Need for an articulated, assessable program of across-the-curriculum K-16 info literacy instruction.
goals
Goals:
  • Embedded Information Literacy:
    • in school and college curricula
    • in teacher education programs
    • In continuing education programs for teachers
  • Design easily read, practical IL standards that speak to teachers and parents as well as librarians
  • Create effective methods of assessing IL learning
teaching methods
Teaching methods
  • Sessions are integrated into class projects
  • Hands on, active learning
