Empowering Students to Find and Evaluate Digital Resources with Confidence
Information literacy is an essential life skill in academic, personal, and professional settings. With the rise of misinformation, disinformation, and biased information, students must navigate resources with a critical eye to ensure that the results are credible, factual, and relevant. When faced with teaching information literacy skills to their students, educators often find it challenging to prioritize information literacy in their lessons due to time constraints and not knowing where to start. Educators can reduce these challenges and meet students’ needs by introducing students to on-demand support built into commonly used tools where their learning is already taking place. Ideally, information literacy solutions should be simple to use and provide valuable feedback for students and actionable data for educators.
