Information Literacy Study

STEP 1:

Reflect on the Stanford Study on Information Literacy” assignment. How did you do on the Stanford Study? You may not have perfect information literacy right now, that is okay. Hopefully this will improve greatly over the next several weeks. However, you should take this opportunity to assess your skills and learn from your mistakes. Take a look at the peers feedback that you got on the Stanford Study on Information Literacy Part I, and then answer the following questions (minimum 150 words), written in paragraph form:

  • What aspect of information literacy (this assignment) was the most difficult? Why? Be specific, describe any questions you missed and/or weren’t sure about.
  • How do you feel about your information literacy at this point? Are you surprised that you did as well as you did? Did you expect to do better?
  • Do you feel that this experience will help you to increase your information literacy moving forward? Why or why not?
  • What do you think this study says about how easy it is to spot “good” and “bad” sources? Why might “good” sources be important, if we want to learn about what is happening in our society?

STEP 2:

Watch the short video “5 Components of Information Literacy (Links to an external site.).” After watching the video, respond to the following 6 questions. Your total response should be at least 250 words.

  1. According to the video, what is the definition of information literacy?
  2. Now, put this definition in your own words.
  3. The video lists 5 separate components of information literacy. Name each of these components and write a brief description of what each one includes.
  4. The video gives both academic and non-academic applications for each of the 5 components. Select one of the components that you feel you have experience with in an academic setting. Describe which component this is and what specific experience(s) you have practicing this aspect of information literacy.
  5. Select one of the components that you feel you have experience with in a non-academic setting. Describe which component this is and what specific experience(s) you have practicing this aspect of information literacy.

STEP 3: REFLECT:

Think about the two activities together and what they demonstrate about your information literacy. Which of the components in the video do you feel you need the most practice with? (Describe the component and why you don’t feel especially confident with this particular component.) Now that you have given some more thought to your own skills in this area, what advice would you offer to other students that might want to improve their information literacy? How do these activities affect how you think about what constitutes research? How do these activities affect how you think about assessing the reliability of sources?
