  36. 36. AASL’s standards for 21st century learners: “The definition of information literacy has become more complex as resources and technologies have changed. Information literacy has progressed from the simple definition of using reference resources to find information. Multiple literacies, including digital, visual, textual, and technological, have now joined information literacy as crucial skills for this century.The continuing expansion of information demands that all individuals acquire the thinking skills that will enable them to learn on their own. The amount of information available to our learners necessitates that each individual acquire the skills to select, evaluate, and use information appropriately and effectively.” ~AASL’s Standards for 21st Century Learners
  37. 37. Did our protocol help you develop the habits of mind addressed in this definition?

PROTOCOL DRAFT: • randomly-selected, grouped as “for vs. against” • 60-90 min. • 10 min. silently process content of resource (read, highlight, note, etc. - mark-up) • 20 min. each team structures their argument and strategy/approach to “mini debate” • 5 min. for each group to present their side • 5-20 min. for back and forth argument • Jaime leads debrief of process (to be finished on site in a Google Form using a closure protocol) • Sean introduces asynchronous follow-up argumentation via Digital Express. protocols will be pre-constructed in a thread on DE.
