Information Technology

Information Literacy

Four Cornerstones



  • Parallel Teaching - Isolated Response:
  • Response to specific requests
  • Often resource-based
  • May involve direct teaching of a research skill
  • Partial collaboration:
  • Some planning between teacher & teacher-librarian
  • Teacher-librarian may offer suggestions or additions to planned activity
  • Instruction can be delivered jointly or separately
  • Full collaboration:
  • Collaboration is deliberate and integrated
  • Design, delivery and assessment is shared

Research indicates test scores rise in both elementary and middle schools as teacher-librarian and teachers work together (Keith Curry Lance - the Second Colorado Study, April 2000)


Information Technology

  • ICT embedded through instruction and practice of:
  • accessing information from our catalogues, databases, the Internet
  • communicating via email (TEL for students), blogs, wikis
  • using electronic tools (software) for critical thinking, organizing, and sorting information
  • presenting information in electronic formats, including media

"Teachers need to integrate technology seamlessly into the curriculum instead of viewing it as an add-on, an afterthought, or an event."Heidi-Hayes Jacobs, Educational Consultant


Information Literacy

School libraries provide a consistent research process from primary to secondary levels through the OSLA Four Stages of Research

“New” literacies (media, cultural, digital) must become part of our program and practice

Teaching research skills can help students find answers for themselves.

International Reading Association, 2007


Reading Literacy

The ability to read, coupled with a love for reading, is the greatest gift we can give our students

The right book, at the right time, for the right student

EQAO, OSSLT are realities – as teachers we must ensure literacy skill development for all students

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.          Dr. Seuss
