Information literacy model

  1. 1. Information Literacy Models
  2. 2. What is Information Literacy?
  3. 3. • Information Literacy is a compelling topic.• Many researchers and education professionals have developed information process models
  4. 4. • Among these models are the Information Search Process (ISP), FLIP It!, and the BIG6 Process.• The age of the learner is not a factor in the process, but the amount of support needed by a media specialist or educator can be determined by using the guidelines of the models to pinpoint where a learner may be.

  6. 6. The Big6• The Big6 is a process model for information problem-solving. It integrates information search and use skills along with technology tools in a systematic process to find, use, apply, and evaluate information for specific needs and tasks.
  7. 7. Michael B. Eisenberg is dean of theInformation School of the University ofWashington. Mike, and his co-author BobBerkowitz, created the Big6 approach toinformation problem-solving, and Mike hasworked with thousands of students (preKthrough higher education), as well as peoplein public schools, business, government, andcommunities to improve their information andtechnology skills.
  8. 8. Mike has written numerous books and articleson aspects of information science andlibrarianship, information literacy, librarymedia work, and information technology.
  9. 9. The Big6
  10. 10. 1. Task Definition1.1 Define the information problem1.2 Identify the information needed (to solve the information problem)
  11. 11. Task Definition is the stage of the Big6 that gives students the most difficulty. Students should be able to:• understand the nature or type of the assignment• select among options• narrow the scope
  12. 12. • determine exactly what they are expected to do• envision what the end product will look like• know how they will be graded• estimate how much time and effort will be required
  13. 13. • consider how much information will be needed• determine the types of information to seek out
  14. 14. 2. Information Seeking Strategies2.1 Determine all possible sources (brainstorm)2.2 Select the best sources
  15. 15. Information seeking strategies is a mind expanding stage of the information problem-solving process. Determine all possible sources) include:• Generating a list of all potential information sources—print, electronic, and human—for a given information problem.
  16. 16. • Recognizing the full range of technology sources: online databases, news an discussion groups, as well as the Internet.
  17. 17. 3. Location and Access3.1 Locate sources (intellectually and physically)3.2 Find information within sources
  18. 18. • Location and Access is getting the needed source in your hands. In this stage, students should be able to:• find the sources they need• use indexes, online card catalogs, and Web searches
  19. 19. • physically locate and check out needed print sources in a library media center• use the index and table of contents of print sources• scan Web sites or digital sources for needed information
  20. 20. • save Web sites or articles for more in-depth reading later• locate experts and develop interview questions
  21. 21. 4. Use of Information4.1 Engage (e.g., read, hear, view, touch) the information in a source4.2 Extract relevant information from a source
  22. 22. • Use of Information is where we get to the heart of the matter;• it requires heavy-duty “critical thinking” as students engage the information in a source and• decide what relevant information to use from each source
  23. 23. 5. Synthesis5.1 Organize information from multipleSources5.2 Present the information
  24. 24. • Synthesis is the most visible part of the information problem-solving process. It’s the end result, the outcome, the conclusion.
  25. 25. 6. Evaluation6.1 Judge the product (effectiveness)6.2 Judge the information problem solvingprocess (efficiency)
  26. 26. • Compare the requirements to the results.• Check the appropriateness and accuracy of the information used.• Judge how well their solution is organized.
  27. 27. • Rate the quality of their final product or performance compared to their personal potential (i.e., Did I do the best that I could?).• Judge the quality of their product to a predefined standard
