Information Transliteracy in the 21st Century Classroom

See on Scoop.itKnowledge Engineering

National Louis University’s Gail Bush, Ph.D., professor in the National College of Education, describes how teachers need to adjust their skill sets to a concept of 21st century information transliteracy, where the validity of sources is more important than the message of sources.

In this short video, Dr. Gail Bush from National Louis University talks about information and literacy. She states we’ve moved beyond information literacy toward information transliteracy, where the format becomes “literally irrelevant.” Dr. Bush says that in the 20th Century we were taught to “answer the question” but now we must “question the answer”

She speaks of the great challenge teachers face when trying to move the model from cognitive authority toward a more open model where the student model the learning habits of instructors and it makes me think about how that happens – or doesn’t – in a public library.”
