Online Programs: 7. Reflection

Information Literacy - It's a life long learning process!

The process of becoming information literate is lifelong.  Information and the technology that helps us locate and work with information are complex and changing rapidly.   Knowing when to look for information, how to find what you need, and  how to critically evaluate what you have found so that you in turn can create your own ethically-cited presentation is a gradual, build-as-you-go process.

Information literacy is so essential to the success of individuals, businesses and organizations, and even entire countries that the United Nations and other international bodies support it as a key piece for economic development.

 (5 min.) What to do?  Reflect:

  • How information literate are you?
  • Which "dimension of inquiry" (information literacy skill set) is your strongest so far?
  • Which "dimension of inquiry" includes skills that you need to acquire or develop?
