Llandrillo Library and Intro Connect students win CyMAL Information Literacy Grant
Posted by LibeRaCe on January 20, 2011
Coleg Llandrillo Library staff with the help of the Intro Connect students have won a share in a recent CyMAL Information Literacy grant award! While the group didn’t win the separate overall student prize, the resources created were well received and their winning entry will help to support other Intro Connect and ILS groups throughout Wales.
The short screencast entitled ‘Think Before You Click’ was created during tutorial sessions with the students and their tutors while discussing e-safety and web awareness. The students shared their ideas for the slides, gave feedback on the draft presentations and recorded their own voice-overs for the final edit. The screencast is part of a wider bi-lingual resource package with powerpoint slides, handouts and a short quiz. These are now also being used on the Llandrillo E-Safety pages for the college.
Information officer Síona Murray said ” the students were a fantastic group to work with, very enthusiastic and full of ideas. We had a great time recording the audio tracks and deciding on the slides. The class tutors were very supportive of the whole project from the start and very generously set aside class time to enable the students to get involved.”
