Information Literacy

We all rely on information in our daily life. The information required can be for childcare, benefits, health information, information for small businesses, help with homework and after school activities for children, or employment information for job seekers. It is therefore important to know how to find and use information.

To find the most relevant information for your needs, it is possible to use Information Literacy skills. "Information literacy is knowing when and why you need information, where to find it, and how to evaluate, use and communicate it in an ethical manner."

Here are the steps that should be taken when you are looking for information.

What information is needed?
Where is the information?

What are the information resources?
How to find information?

Collection and Evaluation
How to evaluate information?

Create and Share
How to use and communicate information in an ethical manner?

Not only does Information Literacy allows you to find the most relevant information it also helps to teach people how to research and study as well as helping people to develop lifelong learning skills that are essential for informed citizenship.
