    • Information Literacy & Web 2.0: Capturing Shareware Technology to Teach Information Fluency Jesse Leraas E7034 Module 4 Assignment 3 5/26/08
    • Information Literacy
      • Information Literacy (IL)
      • Teaching the library user how to find and retrieve information, is one of the most important functions an academic librarian can perform to help students become better researchers and, more importantly, lifelong learners (ARCL, 2000)
    • Information Literacy & Distance Education
      • Though distance learners do not have the same access to on-campus resources of as other students, libraries should strive to provide the same level of resources and services (ALA, 2007)
      • By using Web 2.0 tools, librarians are not only exposing students in the means to find information and become fluent in information retrieval, they are, in effect, introducing students to the tools themselves (Bussert, Brown, & Armstrong, 2008)
      • The paradigm in distance education is constantly changing with the invention of new, more sophisticated technology (Frand, 2000)
    • Information Literacy & Distance Education
      • These technologies are comprised of the social networking platforms that are readily available on Web 2.0 (Huang, C.D. & Ravi, S., 2007).
      • Over the past several years, the Internet has seen a number of vast technological improvements which have been labeled Web 2.0 (Huang, C.D. & Ravi, S., 2007).
      • Many educators see the potential that Web 2.0 has in increasing student learning and have begun to utilize such tools as blogs, wikis, and podcasting in their courses (Gillard, 2007).
    • Social Networking & Web 2.0
      • Some institutions have turned to readily available tools that are inexpensive or free and are easy to use with some training (Huang, C.D. & Ravi, S., 2007)
      • There is a lot of potential for learning that utilize social networking software to create learning opportunities for online users (Huang, C.D. & Ravi, S., 2007)
      • Evans (2007) reports the benefits of using social networking tools to increase user awareness as she states that “[t]he MySpace page tells students about things they didn't know the library offered, like help with research...” (p. 7)
    • Information Literacy & Social Networking Software
      • Social Networking
      • The social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace are a testament to the social nature that is now a large segment of the Internet (Farkas, 2008)
      • Twitter for example presents a platform where individuals can share their collective knowledge
      • (Farkas, 2008)
      • Farkas (2008, January/February) states that “[w]ith Twitter, you can benefit from the wisdom of the crowd rather than the advice of a single expert” (p. 36)
    • Blogging
      • Blogs
      • … afford students the opportunity to take learning outside of the classroom and address issues in an informal manner (Essex, 2007)
      • A review of the literature found that libraries are infrequently, if at all, using blogs to teach Information Literacy (Coutler & Draper, 2006)
      • A study conducted by Coulter and Draper (2006) using blogging software to teach Information Literacy produced mixed results
    • Photo-sharing
      • Photo-sharing
      • Bussert, Brown, & Armstrong (2008) reinvented their Information Literacy program and developed a class which incorporated the photo-sharing software, Flickr (p. 8)
      • The response from students was encouraging, but there are still several areas that need improving (Bussert, Brown, & Armstrong, 2008)
    • Collaborative File Sharing
      • File Sharing
      • Frand (2000) states that "[t]he outlook of those we teach has changed, and thus the way in which we teach must change.  The world in which we all live has changed, and thus the content we teach must change" (p. 24).
      • In order for libraries to teach students relevant Information Literacy skills, they will need to meet those students where they are most comfortable (ALA, 2007).
    • Photo-sharing
      • Photo-sharing
      • Bussert, Brown, & Armstrong (2008) reinvented their Information Literacy program and developed a class which incorporated the photo-sharing software, Flickr (p. 8).
      • The response from students was encouraging, but there are still several areas that need improving
      • (Bussert, Brown, & Armstrong, 2008).
