Teaching generally

27Jun08

My reading takes me into business, politics, and other subject areas. Teachers and librarians could have great talks about how to teach information literacy. We have seen the huge social changes underway from the Internet and now Web 2.0. I personally used a travel agent for the first time in about 10 years. Is this a dying profession with buying travel online, and the cost of oil going through the roof? I don’t know the answers but I do want to spread the word about this video about education or see

Teachers and librarians are helping to teach strategies to kids to sift, analyze and evaluate information. By evaluating the information, people can come up with more intelligent answers, and even more questions perhaps. There is discussion about the background of this video too.

As library professionals, we have important roles in teaching users to evaulate, analyze and synthesize information.
