As an educator, no matter what century you are teaching in, it is critical that you have
informational literacy. But more than ever, teachers absolutely need to be literate with all
kinds of information and how to access it. However, being informationally literate is
something that goes beyond the classroom and school books. It is important because it effects
and enlightens as a person and can impact the lives of people all around us. We live in an
information-age where we have access to information for just about anything right at our
fingertips and that information is increasing at a rapid pace. We have books, television, radio,
the internet, and many other resources that we can use just about 24/7. As people of todays
society, we need to know what information and resources we have available to be able to go
on our day to day lives. Think about it, when was the last time you googled or used some
other type of search engine to find something. I guarantee it was within the past 24 hours. We
have some much power and information at right in our hands and it is crucial we are literate
in it, especially in this day and age.
Here in the 21
Century, educators and students need to be informationally literate more
than ever. With all of the information out there, while accessing, evaluating, and using the
information we gather, we need to know how to filter what is valid and what is not. There is
so much information out there for us to use in the classroom both as educators and students,
but it is important we know that our information is valid and will be affective in the
classroom. Also, as future teachers, it is important that we know how to use all of the
resources we have out there properly so that we can effectively gather information and be
able to teach our future students how to as well.
Information literacy definitely ties together with all of the ISTE Standards for Teachers,
but the one that I thought intertwined with it the most was the one that states that we need to
model digital age work and learning. Now this is a very broad standard because modeling
work and learning can certainly refer to information and gathering information. To keep up
with the ISTE standards, model is the key word. We need to make sure we model what
good information literacy is.
While being informationally literate, we need to make sure we always keep an eye out for
plagiarism and copyright information. Again, there is tons of information out there for us to
use, but plagiarizing someone elses work or information is not okay. Citing and referencing
the sources you find is a huge part to being informationally literate in the 21
Stealing someone elses ideas and words is against the law, so we need to make sure they get
the credit for the information we use in and outside of the classroom.
Technology is the number one source to information we have in the 21
Century without
a doubt. Technology is only increasing in the world today and this means that being literate
with information is needed more than ever. As educators, students, and members of society,
we have always needed to know how to access information from books, but now the internet
has more information than we could have ever once gathered from books. We can type in just
about anything into a search engine and get hundreds of results in a matter of seconds. We
can turn on a television or radio and get information with a matter of a few clicks. The
information technology holds in this century is truly a powerful thing, and we all need to
know how to use those resources now more than ever.
