Yes, your kids probably know how to find funny videos on TikTok or a fun gaming app on their tablet. But do they know how to find the information they need?
With the rise of the internet, our students have access to abundant knowledge. But not all that glitters is gold! That's why we have to equip our young learners with the skills to navigate this sea of information effectively. Welcome to the age of information literacy, where we bridge the gap between Gutenberg's printing press and Google's search bar!
Alright, let's start with the basics. Information literacy is like a secret decoder ring for the digital age. It's about teaching our students how to find, evaluate, and use information effectively. Think of it as the compass that guides them through the vast wilderness of online resources.
