Presentation Description

Unlocking the new knowledge economy can be as simple – and as difficult – as selecting the correct search terms. Increasingly, information literacies rely on our capacity to create and refine search strings, to know where and how to seek specific information, from the dates of the French Revolution to a YouTube video on how to change a bicycle tire to the quick-key commands for Photoshop. Participants will leave the discussion with a list of sites and sources, and sample assignments promoting skill development and deliberate practice.
