Product description

Review

As digital nativesmost middle and high school students perceive themselves to be skilled web users. But when assessed, we found that even our most academically advanced students struggled with information fluency. Students conduct research in school, share resources with friends and family, and exchange a wide variety of information electronically via the Internet. Information fluency is critical, and the skills need to be taught. Since we initiated our information fluency program five years ago, the results have been impressive. With just a few hours of online work, students show significant gains. Our experiencedemonstrates that critical information fluency skills can be learned, and taught effectivelyin anefficientway.--Susan Corwith, Associate Director, Center for Talent Development, Northwestern University"

Heine and O'Connor use their experience with the highly respected 21st Century Information Project to create a book that is comprehensive, practical, and wise for educators who are serious about teaching both students and themselves to be truly information literate. Covering types of searches, the ethical use of information, instructional methods, and curation, this definitive guide lays out both strategies and tools critical for anyone working to find and use online information today.--Doug Johnson, Director of Media and Technology, Mankato (MN) Area Public Schools

Teaching information Fluency has been a pleasure to read! I appreciate the lively style and chance to get inside the minds of seminal thinkers like Carl Heine and Dennis O'Connor. ... I was delighted to read [the] careful analysis of a small number of well-described tools in which they take the time to address 'why' the tools are worth using well.--Debbie Abilock, speaker, consultant and author of Growing Schools: Librarians as Professional Developers
