Information Literacy Presentation 2

Bringing the handout to the top for the conference session.

Sarah's Notebook

October 12-14, 2016 was this year’s Iowa Library Association conference (ILA). This is the second time I presented on “Digital Natives?: Basics of Information Literacy.”

You hear the term Digital Native tossed around a lot about young people today. A true digital native would be information literate. Information Literacy, making sure people can find, evaluate for quality, and use the information that they need and think critically about it, is a big part of any library. This presentation will point out practical points that you can help people learn to evaluate and secure information. Topics covered will include website evaluation, how the Internet becomes an echo chamber of your beliefs, how to build better passwords, and the importance of a digital will.

Below you will find the links that I used in the program. I think you will find them interesting.
