Presentation Description

Before we identify our information need, decide how to access and locate the information, and indeed how to evaluate it, perhaps a definition is in order. Where does a working definition of information belong within the scope of 21st century learning skills? We will explore these concepts with a learning goal of building knowledge, understanding, and maybe even a little bit of wisdom. These issues are fundamental to all educators, K – 16, as students of all ages are served best while building their own knowledge within constructivist learning environments
