  • 1. A Critique of: Yarmey, K. (2011). Student Information Literacy in the Mobile Environment. 1-8.http://www.educause.edu/EDUCAUSE+Quarterly/EDUCAUSEQuarterlyMagazineVo lum/StudentInformationLiteracyinth/225860 Israel Butler May 16, 2012 EDET 780
  • 2.  Searching for information effectively Critical evaluation of information Incorporation of new information into one’s knowledge base
  • 3.  Study conducted fall 2010 Electronic survey on Internet-capable phone use Random sample of 832 University of Scranton undergraduates Ages 18-24, representing 22% of university’s undergrad population. Survey consisted of 35 multiple-choice questions
  • 4.  69% of respondents (229 students) owned smartphones  iPhone – 11%  Android – 12%  BlackBerry – 20%  Other brands – 57%
  • 5. (Yarmey Figure 2)
  • 6.  Different phone users search for information in various ways Majority of smartphone users used typed keywords iPhone and Android users used alternative input methods
  • 7.  Yarmey’s survey found that the majority of students reviewed search results less than twice Less than 25% reported checking more than five initial search results
  • 8.  25% of respondents did not question reliability of sites <10% reported visiting a website’s “About Us” page Varmey’s theory:  Loading additional web page on phone would demand more time: speed of data connection
  • 9.  73% of iPhone users and 86% of Android users used app reviews to judge reliability Less than 7% of iPhone users and 11% of Android users did not question validity of apps
  • 10.  Information literacy instructors should become familiar with new search methods to aid students Students should review a number of serach results Instructors should help students understand how to evaluate info when presented in nontraditional forms, i.e. mobile apps Students may need help applying information literacy skills learned while searching on a desktop/laptop
  • 11.  Mobile technology such as iPads and other tablet devices were beginning to surface in the mainstream Certain Academic apps (Scranton’s Angel system) were not as userfriendly during the time of survey Research was limited in scope due to single- site survey
  • 12.  Searching for information effectively in the mobile environment Critical evaluation of mobile resources Exploring different methods information was retrieved through smartphones
  • 13.  How has information literacy changed with the emergence of recent technological advancements in mobile devices and tablet computers? Since academic mobile apps have been improved since the time of this study, are postsecondary students more information literate with user-friendlier apps?
