Information literacy is for life, not just for a good degree | CILIP

Posted by LibeRaCe on June 19, 2014

Source: www.cilip.org.uk

"More recently this focus has widened to examine transition from school and Further Education (FE) into University, recognizing universities’ increasingly high expectations of new undergraduates information literacies. This widening of focus is also starting to bring workplace information literacy under the spotlight. It’s an exciting time for this area of research, as theory and practice can be seen to start to reflect the Alexandria Proclamation assertion that “Information Literacy lies at the core of lifelong learning. It empowers people in all walks of life to seek, evaluate, use and create information effectively to achieve their personal, social, occupational and educational goals.” – See more at: http://www.cilip.org.uk/cilip/news/information-literacy-life-not-just-good-degree#sthash.rI2UoTAV.dpuf

Collaborative Approaches to Information Literacy
This event aims to give participants an opportunity to learn from the good practice of the presenters who have innovated and developed their practice by working collaboratively.
The speakers for the event include staff from different HE and FE institutions who will discuss how they have collaborated with different professionals, both across their institutions, and externally.
As a result of attending this event participants will have a greater understanding of how to develop integrated approaches to information and digital literacy practice. There will be a focus on how collaborative practice can raise the profile of IL beyond the library and enable services to work more efficiently with stronger outcomes. Attendees will learn practical ways to share information and knowledge beyond immediate teams, and how to build relationships to make better use of existing resources and aid skill development.

Librarians’ unique role teaching skills to stay safe online | CILIP

Posted by LibeRaCe on February 7, 2014

See on Scoop.itESafety and Digital Citizenship

Llandrillo Library‘s insight:

The internet has become an integral part of our lives; a source of information, a means of communication, a channel for sharing and a source of creativity.

However poor information literacy skills in a digital environment will leave children and young people susceptible in adult life to poor decision-making, and vulnerable to identity theft and other cybercrimes, or even radicalisation through hate sites.  CILIP believes that librarians and information professionals, especially school librarians and children’s specialists in public libraries, have a vital role in teaching children effective and safe use of the internet and pointing them to online resources. They also advise parents, carers and others with responsibilities for children. – See more at: http://www.cilip.org.uk/cilip/news/librarians-unique-role-teaching-skills-stay-safe-online#sthash.3eZmvhrx.dpuf
