We have an unprecedented level of accessibility to information. In many cases our access to information can occur across a myriad of technological devices including a computer, a tablet device, and a smartphone. Given the mass quantities of information available, it is vital for us to develop strategies for not only finding what we need, but also being able to effectively filter out what we don’t need. 3 out of 4 students, and 3.5 out of 4 teachers, are not as effective at searching for and finding truly meaningful and useful information as they could be. This session will focus on identifying appropriate strategies for Information Literacy, Media Literacy, and why these skill sets are critical for our students and ourselves. In addition, we will identify appropriate methodologies for applying critical thinking skills to evaluate content.
