Information literacy is important for today's learners. It promotes problem-solving approaches and thinking skills asking questions, seeking answers, finding information, forming opinions, evaluating sources, and making decisions. All of these help to foster successful learners, effective contributors, confident individuals, and responsible citizens. Join Howie Diblasi as he explores how you can help students learn to identify what is real and relevant not just for school, but for learning, life, and work. Howie will include a discussion of Information Literacy models, where to get started, ways to get students thinking, and various search strategies. In addition to sharing tools and resources, he will also provide activities to develop student understanding and a checklist for evaluating Web resources.

This was really good for setting up curiosity based research with tools to discern essential questions, develop research plans and how to determine the validity of information gathered. The critical thinking based questioning and how to LISTEN to the students answers was especially interesting to me.
