    1. information literacy and critical information literacy are the domain of all, and a useful concept for anyone engaged by questions of how information as a public good and commodity is created, disseminated, and interpreted within broader political, social, and cultural contexts.

      That is the exact reason why I participate in the IL track this year!

    1. many settings

      Because this Framework envisions information literacy as extending the arc of learning throughout students’ academic careers and as converging with other academic and social learning goals, an expanded definition of information literacy is offered here to emphasize dynamism, flexibility, individual growth, and community learning:

      Information literacy is the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning.

    2. apply IL

      Metaliteracy expands the scope of traditional information skills (determine, access, locate, understand, produce, and use information) to include the collaborative production and sharing of information in participatory digital environments (collaborate, produce, and share).

      This approach requires an ongoing adaptation to emerging technologies and an understanding of the critical thinking and reflection required to engage in these spaces as producers, collaborators, and distributors.

    3. iscusses ways

      The Framework is organized into six frames, each consisting of a concept central to information literacy, a set of knowledge practices, and a set of dispositions. The six concepts that anchor the frames are presented alphabetically:

      1. Authority Is Constructed and Contextual
      2. Information Creation as a Process
      3. Information Has Value
      4. Research as Inquiry
      5. Scholarship as Conversation
      6. Searching as Strategic Exploration

      Mueller, D. (2015, February 9). Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education [Text]. Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL). http://www.ala.org/acrl/standards/ilframework

    4. The Framework

      "based on a cluster of interconnected core concepts, with flexible options for implementation, rather than on a set of standards or learning outcomes, or any prescriptive enumeration of skills. At the heart of this Framework are conceptual understandings that organize many other concepts and ideas about information, research, and scholarship into a coherent whole."

    5. What is Information Literacy?

      According to the American Library Association, "Information literacy is a set of abilities requiring individuals to 'recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information.'"

      Further, as academic libraries, Madison College Libraries are committed to moving students toward the Association of College & Research Libraries' new 'Framework for Information Literacy', adopted in January of 2016 by the ACRL Board.

      In the below diagram, you will notice that to be truly 'information literate' requires that you simultaneously develop:

      • awareness of how you engage with the digital world
      • how you find meaning in the information you discover
      • how to articulate what kind of information you require
      • how to use information ethically
      • understand the role you can play in the communication in your profession and
      • how you evaluate information for credibility and authority.

    6. “information

      Three meanings of "information" are distinguished: "Information-as-process"; "information-as-knowledge"; and "information-as-thing", the attributive use of "information" to denote things regarded as informative. The nature and characteristics of "information-as-thing" are discussed, using an indirect approach ("What things are informative?"). Varieties of "information-as-thing" include data, text, documents, objects, and events. On this view "information" includes but extends beyond communication. Whatever information storage and retrieval systems store and retrieve is necessarily "information-as-thing".

    2. Key teaching methods that librarians who practice critical IL report as using most often include: Discussion and Dialogue Group Work Skipping the Database Demonstration Reflection Problem-Posing
    3. approach to education that focuses on cultivating a critical consciousness in students, with the goal of facilitating students’ abilities to “take control of their lives and their own learning to become active agents, asking and answering questions that matter to them and the world around them.
    4. Critical information literacy is a way of thinking and teaching that examines the social construction and political dimensions of libraries and information, problematizing information’s production and use so that library users may think critically about such forces.
    5. Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education (2016),
    6. approach to education in library settings that strives to recognize education’s potential for social change and empower learners to identify and act upon oppressive power structures.
    7. critical information literacy (critical IL) aims to understand how libraries participate in systems of oppression and find ways for librarians and students to act upon these systems
    8. imagine education as a site for generating social change.
    9. emboldens learners’ agency
    10. broader literature of critical approaches to librarianship has increased considerably over the past decade, taking issue with the notion of libraries as ideologically neutral spaces, arguing for an understanding of information literacy that accounts for sociopolitical dynamics, and seeking ways to involve library users in the politics of information access and use.
    11. foundational work of critical information literacy is James Elmborg’s 2006 essay
    12. Lua Gregory and Shana Higgins in Information Literacy and Social Justice: Radical Professional Praxis, critical information literacy “takes into consideration the social, political, economic, and corporate systems that have power and influence over information production, dissemination, access, and consumption.”2
    1. The Effects of Grading

      research since the beginning of 21st cent highlights erroneous approach to teaching with grades at the core:

      1. Grades tend to diminish students’ interest in whatever they’re learning.
      2. tend to reduce the quality of students' thinking.
      3. create a preference for the easiest possible task

    1. There will often be some mention of Louis Riel after this point. But afterwards, while there are some variations depending on where went to school, Native peoples essentially vanish from the narrative. Aside from a short discussion of Louis Riel, Native peoples essentially vanish from the narrative.

      There's a repeat here.

    1. the web’s open architecture guarantees that one way or another, it’s possible to create and share authoritative overlays. Annotation tools and services are converging on open standards that will enable them to work with one another,3 just as different kinds of web browser and email clients are able to work with different kinds of web and email servers. This movement toward open and interoperable web annotation sets the stage for a democratization of the scholarly arts of close reading, line-by-line analysis, and accurate citation.
