Web 2.0 provides ways to filter, streamline, organise, share, distribute or gather information from the burgeoning information jungle. With the power of 2.0 the information revolution can be tamed. Teachers can learn new ways to incorporate search strategies into their personal information-seeking toolkits and then work with students to weave deeper understandings of how to find information right into the fabric of their learning. In a learning environment where writing, reflecting, creating and collaborating are driving authentic engagement with content, searching and researching has to encompass multi-literacies and information fluency in the process. It’s time to challenge the old standards of ‘search’. With all our experience as teachers, we are novices in the information revolution. It’s not a one-size-fits-all environment, and the myriad of choices, tools and techniques we could customise for our professional purposes need explanation and elaboration to understand how to be a confident, efficient and effective news and knowledge curators. This session will show how connecting, collaborating and networking are dependent on knowledge filters and information search techniques that allow teachers to become extraordinary information architects in charge of their own knowledge work, ready to mentor and support the learning of their students.
