Chalk Talk: What Is Information Literacy?
Information Literacy (IL) is a critical thinking skill that is increasingly important in contemporary society, which is information rich as a result of technological developments. IL is defined as one’s ability to comprehend the need for information, identify appropriate resources, locate information efficiently, evaluate appropriate sources of information, analyze the potential impact of information discovered, and then utilize information appropriately. The information literate are able to demonstrate such skills while using the Internet, brick and mortar libraries, and other resources. Given the increasingly complex nature of widely available information systems like the Internet, it is essential students living in today’s information rich society demonstrate sophisticated IL skills. In addition to being useful in civic life, IL skills are necessary at the university level, wherein students are expected to conduct ever more sophisticated searches for information. As such, public school districts are adopting standards that focus on the development of essential IL skills in an effort to best prepare students for life after high school.
