Facebook in the Information Literacy Classroom: Framework and Strategies

320

Published on

Presenters: Donna Witek and Teresa Grettano
PaLA’s Teaching, Learning & Technology (TL&T) Round Table Spring 2012 Workshop, Harrisburg, PA, March 30, 2012
Description: It's a safe bet that the majority of our students are on Facebook. For students old enough to use the website, Facebook is reshaping what it means to find and use information. As librarians our knowledge of this shift can be leveraged in the information literacy classroom. In this presentation, attendees will learn the ways that Facebook as a tool is affecting our students' information seeking behaviors and practices. Using as a guide the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, the presenters will identify the conceptual links between Facebook's core functions and information literacy as defined by the Standards. They will then suggest ways in which these conceptual links can be co-opted by information literacy instructors seeking to reinvigorate the research process for their students ("using Facebook" to do so). Attendees will leave this presentation with concrete strategies, based on a conceptual framework, of how to use Facebook as a teaching tool in the information literacy classroom.
