Information Literacy & Critical Thinking Connections
This section includes information and resources about information literacy--both in theory and practice. Please share your reactions as well as links or resources that we should include. [Mike Eisenberg, 2012]
Project Information Literacy (PIL) is an ongoing research project, based in the University of Washington's Information School. PIL continues to study early adults enrolled or graduated from community colleges and public and private colleges and universities in the U.S.
The goal of Project Information Literacy is to understand how early adults conceptualize and operationalize research activities for course work and "everyday life" use and especially how they resolve issues of credibility, authority, relevance, and currency in the digital age.
There are many different sets of information literacy standards - created by professional organizations, state education departments, school districts, and individual schools and professionals. While the ACRL standards are aimed at college level students, we believe that these standards are relevant to all age and grade levels.
