This summer, my department and I are working on a professional development project to map out a K-12 Information Literacy curriculum for our school, plus write some research based stories on how to implement it… Here’s the outline. What are your thoughts? Do you have other readings that have formed your Information Literacy curriculum? What would you add or take away? Do you have a framework? Lots of questions…
Goal: As a department, our goal is to create a K-12 Information Literacy skills matrix with research based example projects that can be used as a reference for the school.
