  • 1. Learning How to LearnInformation Literacy for Lifelong Meaning
    Assistant Professor
    Dept. of Library Science and Information Systems
    Alexander Technological Educational Institute of Thessaloniki
  • 2. Education
    Our net conclusion is that life is development, and that developing, growing, is life. Translated into its educational equivalents, that means
    (i) that the educational process has no end beyond itself; it is its own end; and
    (ii) that the educational process is one of continual reorganizing, reconstructing, transforming (Dewey 1916, as cited in Hall, 2010).
  • 3. Lifelong Learning
    All learning activity undertaken throughout life, with the aim of improving knowledge, skills and competences within a personal, civic, social and/or employment-related perspective(EU, 2001)
  • 4. Lifelong learning
    • Concept developed in early ’70s
    • 5. Lifelong Learning, Recurrent Education, Éducation Permanente
    • 6. Emphasis that learning is a lifelong process and all education should be organized around this principle
  • Lifelong Learning
    Lifelong learning has been defined as “the systematic acquisition, renewal, upgrading and completion of knowledge, skills and attitudes made necessary by the constantly changing conditions in which people now live” (Candy et al., 1994)
    The concept of lifelong learning implies a cycle where the learner contributes prior learning into a new learning environment and sees that learning upgraded (Pitman & Broomhall, 2009)
  • 7. Lifelong learning
    Lifelong learning or Adult education traditionally concerned
    more with social, political, personal, and cultural development
    than with economic development and employability
  • 8.
  • 9. Learning to be
    The world of education
    today and tomorrow
    Edgar Faure
    Felipe Herrera
    Henri Lopes
    Arthur V. Petrovsky
    Frederick Champion Ward
    Paris: Unesco, 1972
  • 10. Lifelong learning
    The Faure report formulated the philosophical–political concept of a humanistic, democraticand emancipatory system of learning opportunities for everybody, independent of class, race or financial means, and independent of the age of the learner
  • 11. Lifelong Learning
    • More international organizations embrace concept, i.e. European Council, Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development, World Bank, International Labor Office
    • 12. Main and common principle: education and organized learning should no longer be limited to a person’s youth, nor should education be exclusive domain of educational institutions
  • Lifelong learning
    • Idea of Lifelong Learning re-emerges in 1990s
    • 13. Propagated by international organizations again
    • 14. Different rationale: emphasis on it as human capital
    • 15. Espoused both by governments of Western industrialized countries and industry
    Education conceived as being related to personal development,
    democracy and the need of the society
    In Delors Report principles as ‘learning to be’ and ‘learning to
    live together’ central in discussions on lifelong learning
    International conference on adult education emphasizes social
    dimension of education, mentioning a right to education throughout
  • 16. Learning: The Treasure within. Report to UNESCO of the International Commission on Education for the Twenty-first Century, 1999
  • 17.
  • 18.
  • 19. European Union
    European Union launched activities in LLL in early 1990s
    An economic agenda followed, beginning by green and white papers in the
    1990s, later by the European Employment Strategy and the Lisbon Strategy
    Placed lifelong learning and the importance of updating skills close to the
    target of becoming a competitive knowledge economy, in line with a neoliberal
    approach to education (Borg & Mayo, 2005)
  • 20. OECD
    Initially included social aspects like personal development, in line with
    organization’s emphasis on social objectives in 1970s
    Influenced by Sweden, develops concept further, by suggesting that
    education beyond compulsory schooling should be organized in recurrent
    pattern, alternating with phases of work and other social activities
    ‘Recurrent Education’ is seen as a strategy for making Lifelong Learning a
    reality (OECD, 1973)
  • 21. OECD
    Since 1980s, emphasis towards economic concerns
    Based on meeting on ‘Lifelong Learning for All’ in 1996, works on
    specific elements of lifelong learning, like financing or
    qualification frameworks
    Mainly conceives lifelong learning as important economic corner
    stone for knowledge economies (OECD, 1996)
  • 22. World Bank
    Underlines importance of lifelong learning for development,
    favors private educational investments and provision beyond
    basic education and restricts the state to a coordinating role
  • 23. International Labor Office
    Still pursues a more social democratic agenda, conceiving lifelong learning as an important means for the development of worker’s skills, even if its current approach also acknowledges not only governmental, but also private and individual responsibility for continuing learning
  • 24. International Labor Office
    Paid educational leave introduced--Mechanism to permit workers engage in LLL activities, without losing jobs and getting paid
    ILO passes a convention on paid educational leave in 1974 (Schuetze, 1992)
  • 25. Lifelong learning
    Criticism from researchers that all international efforts, not being associated with national plans, more on theoretical level than providing a realistic framework
    Lifelong and recurrent education concepts imply extensive changes in entire education system, but also in enterprises, labor markets, social insurance and income transfer policies
  • 26. Lifelong learning
    • developing a culture of lifelong learning must be motivated by more than the economic rationale that currently dominates policy thinking
    • 27. despite persistent efforts at bridging the differences between general education and vocational education and training, the gap remains
    • 28. the level of employer involvement in lifelong learning programs clearly remains inadequate, and
    • 29. new resources are needed if implementation of policies for lifelong learning is to become affordable
  • How can Lifelong Learning become lasting experience?
    Need for restructuring the learning process
    Active student participation in learning
    Learning experiences building a lifelong habit of library use
    Critical use of available information resources
    Problem solving and association with real life situations
    More specifically
    - knowing when there is a need for information
    - identifying information needed to address a given problem or issue
    - finding needed information and evaluating the information
    - organizing the information
    - using the information effectively to address the problem or issue at hand
  • 30. Libraries
    “In the …. library setting, librarians can enhance social capital by collaborating with … and other … constituencies, immersing themselves in … and community life, bridging the gaps …, and working … to create authentic learning experiences in which individuals’ development of information literacy competencies is inextricably linked to learning about the world and ways of participating productively in it” (Stevens &Campbell, 2006)
  • 31. Libraries
    “…libraries as ‘cultural agencies’ create the conditions for the generation of social capital, lifelong learning, and the productive relationship between the two” (Stevens &Campbell, 2006)
  • 32. Adult learning
    Adults learn best when they:
    • Know the specific, practical reason or purpose for what they are being asked
    • 33. Can use their previous experiences as are relevant and supportive foundation for their new learning
    • 34. Take responsibility for making decisions about the learning, such as what form it will take and how they will be evaluated
    • 35. Understand the relevance of the learning to their job, life, family, country, or values
    • 36. Are allowed to actively learn using problem-based or activity-based learning rather than memorization of abstract ideas or content
    • 37. Can use their internal motivation to learn rather than an external, teacher-based motivation (Stern & Kaur, 2002)
  • Adult learning
    • Moving from pedagogy to andragogy (Hiemstra & Sisco, 1990)
    • 38. Malcolm Knowles: apostle of andragogy (Carlson, 1989)
    • 39. Andragogy and adult learning theory (Adams, 2003)
    • 40. Andragogical and Pedagogical Training Differences for Online Instructors (Gibbons andWentworth, 2001)
    • 41. Andragogy (Thompson, 2003)
    • 42. Dewald, Nancy H. (2003). “Pedagogy and andragogy.” In Elizabeth A Dupuis, ed. Developing web-based instruction : planning, designing, managing, and evaluating for results. New York : Neal-Schuman Publishers.
  • 43. Concerns about Lifelong Learning
    How to make lifelong learning a practical reality -- a challenge to modern society (and to its organizations)
    Education, training and development continue to benefit those who are already well educated and those who are in employment
    As a general rule there is a direct relationship between level of education and unemployment rate: the higher the former the lower the latter (Bryans, 2001)
  • 44. Concerns about Lifelong Learning
    Two crucial tests for an education system:
    How well children can apply what they have learned outside the bounds of formal educational experience and
    How well they are prepared to continue learning and solving problems throughout the rest of their lives (Bentley, 1998)
  • 45. Information
    • A vital element for creativity and innovation
    • 46. A basic resource for learning and human thought
    • 47. A key resource in creating more knowledgeable citizens
    • 48. A factor that enables citizens to achieve better results in their academic lives, with regard to health, and at work
    • 49. An important resource for national socio-economic development
  • 50. Information--The Setting
    Increasing quantities of information to be accessed rapidly-- the
    Information explosion
    Critical evaluation of information necessary
    Individuals as critical consumers of information
  • 51. Information--The Setting
    “Sheer abundance of information and technology will not in itself create more informed citizens without a complementary understanding and capacity to use information effectively”(Bundy, 2004)
  • 52. Lifelong Learning beyond the Education process
    What of the billions of people who are not part of the higher education process? What of the people who never set foot in a library in search of information?
    I am not speaking here, necessarily, of the stereotype of children in less-developed nations whose classroom is a spot in the dust under a tree. I am speaking of the average Canadian, and their counterparts in other countries, who last used a library when they were in school and now retrieve all of their information from friends and family, experts whom they contact, the media and increasingly, Google (Campbell, 2004)
  • 53. Information Literacy
    Within today's information society, the most important learning outcome for all students is their being able to function as independent lifelong learners. The essential enabler to reaching that goal is information literacy (Breivik, 2000)
  • 54. Information Literacy
    “Information literacy forms the basis for lifelong learning. It is common to all disciplines, to all learning environments, and to all levels of education. It enables learners to master content and extend their investigations, become more self-directed, and assume greater control over their own learning” (ACRL, 2000)
  • 55. Information Literacy
    Information-literate individual able to
    determine the nature and extent of the information needed
    access needed information effectively and efficiently
    evaluate information and its sources critically
    incorporate selected information into their knowledge base
    use information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose
    understand the economic, legal and social issues surrounding the use of information, and
    use information ethically and legally (ACRL, 2000)
  • 56. Information Literacy
    • Ultimately, information literate people are those who have learned how to learn
    • 57. They know how to learn because they know how knowledge is organized, how to find information, and how to use information in such a way that others can learn from them
    • 58. They are people prepared for lifelong learning, because they can always find the information needed for any task or decision at hand(American Library Association, 1989)
  • How are Information Literacy and Lifelong Learning inter-related?
    Both concepts:
    • Largely self-motivated and self-directed
    • Self-empowering
    • Self-actuating(Unesco. Understanding Information Literacy, 2007)
  • 59. Undergraduate education
    Undergraduate education potential link in lifelong learning experiences for each individual
    Development of capacity for lifelong learning should be core for all programs in every discipline for coping with various learning opportunities
    Access to and critical use of information absolutely vital to lifelong learning; no person regarded educated unless “information literate”
    Many practices militate against development for lifelong learning attributes in graduates
  • 60. Undergraduate education
    Courses enhancing lifelong learning have following characteristics:
    provide systematic framework for viewing field of study
    offer comparative framework for viewing field of study
    seek to broaden the student and provide generic skills
    offer freedom of choice and flexibility in structure
    provide for incremental development of self-directed learning
  • 61. Undergraduate education
    Teaching methods have following characteristics:
    make use of peer-assisted and self-directed learning
    include experiential and real world learning
    make use of resource based and problem based teaching
    encourage development of reflective practice and critical self-awareness
    make use of open learning and alternative delivery mechanisms
    Assessment evaluates “what” has been learnt
  • 62.
  • 63.
  • 64. Teaching Information Literacy
    Information literacy is a learning issue not a library issue, classroom faculty must be responsible for students acquiring information literacy abilities
    All students must have sufficient opportunities to master the full range of information literacy abilities they will need for effective lifelong learning (Rockman, 2001)
  • 65. Teaching Information Literacy
    • Library orientation
    • 66. Single-class or “one-shot” bibliographic instruction courses
    • 67. Sessions associated with a specific assignment
    • 68. Generic library courses—for credit, required/not required
    • 69. Course integrated information literacy
  • Course integrated information literacy
    Various examples of implementation
    Mellon Faculty Institute on Undergraduate Research / University
    of California, Berkeley-The Berkeley project
    Library/Faculty Institute on Undergraduate Research / Hellenic
    Academic Libraries Link (HEAL-Link), Univ. of California, Berkeley
    and Alexander TEI of Thessaloniki
  • 70. Example of Information Literacy in the curriculum
    • “political literacy and information literacy are inextricably linked and impossible to separate”
    • 71. “become more politically literate, more information literate, and therefore better students and citizens”
    • 72. “an exercise in which they must read, listen to, and watch a variety of media sources (at least ten)”, then “review each source for content, bias, and quality of information” (Alexander, 2009)
  • An easy-to-read, non-technical overview explaining What “information literacy” means, designed for busy public policy-makers, business executives, civil society administrators and practicing professionals
  • 73. Information literacy and primary/ secondary education
    To assist students in information seeking and ethical use of
    To protect them from possible misuses and emphasize safe use
    Not included in educational policies in most countries
  • 74. Information literacy and primary/secondary education
    G r a d e 5: Compare and contrast information obtained from subscription databases and from open-ended search engines on the Internet…
    Grades 7 & 8: Understand and communicate the ethical use of intellectual property. Use a variety of media to impart information, share opinions, and/or persuade an audience (audio, video, written).
    G r a d e s 9 t h r o u g h 12: Use a variety of specialized search engines and databases to locate relevant information. Demonstrate proper procedures and good citizenship online (Farmer, 2010)
  • 75. Research on Information Literacy skills in secondary education students
    The [American] Educational Testing Service conducted extended surveys in 2005 and 2006 to investigate students’ information fluency
    More than 10.000 students participated in the surveys
    Evidence “…of students' difficulty with ICT literacy despite their technical prowess”
    “…results reflect poor ICT literacy performance not only by students within one institution, but across participating high schools, community colleges, and four-year colleges and universities (Katz, 2007)
  • 76. Response to Changes in the digital age, the era of web 2.0 and participatory culture
    To reflect these changes the American Association of School
    Librarians published:
    TheStandards for the 21st-Century Learner (AASL, 2007)
    The Standards for the 21st-Century Learner in Action (AASL,
    2009), and
    Empowering Learners: Guidelines for School Library Media Programs (AASL, 2009)
  • 77.
  • 78. Standards for the 21st century learner
    Developed in 2007 by the American Association of School Librarians
    A new approach to education aiming at conceptual learning
    Away from rules children cannot interconnect and interpret to principles for application
    Train children in finding their own answers to real problems, based on resources and interpretation of the environment
    Assist trainers in designing learning strategies resulting in higher order learning outcomes (Standards for the 21st century, 2007)
  • 79. Standards for the 21st century learner
    Standard 1. Inquire, think critically, and gain knowledge
    Standard 2. Draw conclusions, make informed decisions, apply knowledge to new situations, and create new knowledge
    Standard 3. Share knowledge and participate ethically and productively as members of our democratic society
    Standard 4. Pursue personal and aesthetic growth
  • 80. Accompanies the standards and
    advises on their incorporation into the
    school library program
  • 81. Accompanies two previous publications
    aiming at creation of flexible environments,
    conducive to successful learning and
    acquisition of multiple literacies

  • 84. Information Literacy Standards for Science and Engineering/Technology
    Based on the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, five standards and twenty-five performance indicators were developed for information literacy in Science & Engineering/Technology
    Each performance indicator is accompanied by one or more outcomes for assessing the progress toward information literacy of students of science and engineering or technology at all levels of higher education

  • 97. Public libraries, lifelong learning and Information literacy
    What happens to citizens when they are not affiliated with a school anymore?
    What happens to citizens who have never attended secondary/post secondary education?
    Very little activity about information literacy
  • 98. Public libraries, lifelong learning and Information literacy
    Schools and universities can provide information literacy support and
    instruction during years of formal education but do not serve
    Individuals in the subsequent years of informal or self-directed study or
    As information literacy is a lifelong skill, public libraries are perfectly
    positioned to be a ‘constant presence throughout people’s lives,’ and
    able to provide ongoing support to individuals in developing
    information literacy skills(Harding, 2008)
  • 99. Public libraries, lifelong learning and Information literacy
    Public libraries are among the most important places for the members
    of a given community to connect with information so that they may
    read, interpret, and produce information that will be appropriate and
    valuable to the community
    By making information literacy a core mission, public libraries can
    reach out to all who wish to be lifelong learners rather than just the
    institutionally educated elite and, in so doing, nurture democracies (Hall,
