Presentation Description

Information Literacy has a long history as a discipline focused on teaching students to make sense of and effectively use the vast and qualitatively variable sources they encounter. The emphasis has been on the technical ability to locate the information that is available and to think critically about the accuracy, biases and authority of resources encountered. This presentation describes a Critical Information Literacy approach to using blogs and ‘glogs’ to establish critical metacognitive instructional dialogues that encourage students to examine the social, cultural, and political nature of information itself.
