What's New

By Heather Kelsall

The same day that the New Zealand News article discussing information literacy was delivered, the flyer promoting the new CD ROM: Teaching Information Skills arrived from ASLA. I have yet to explore the CD ROM but for those T /Ls who have not yet seen the flyer, the contents are worth mentioning here.

The software package has been produced for teachers and teacher librarians as a support resource for use when instigating information skills and competencies in students. The professional content of the CD ROM is divided into three aspects: educators are encouraged to develop their own level of information literacy; it provides the opportunity to develop competency and confidence to teach information skills across the curriculum; and it outlines strategies for collaborative planning using integrated resource-based programs.
