    INFORMATION LITERACY

    Twenty-first century students are engulfed in media and information. While accessing information resources has never been faster, discerning which of these resources is high quality has never been more complex.  Media literacy involves learning how to do research, critically evaluating various media forms, and ethically using the information found.  Skillful media users successfully access, evaluate and utilize information for personal learning and problem solving.

    Media literacy skills are not just to help students complete school projects; they are life-long and life-wide skills.  Knowing how to find and access the best information gives students a great advantage. Making informed decisions becomes easier when one has strong media literacy skills.

    Librarians work closely with content teachers in promoting these skills and helping to meet various core PA Academic Standards (1.1 Reading Independently; 1.2 Reading Critically; 1.3 Reading, Analyzing and Interpreting Literature; 1.6 Speaking and Listening; 1.8 Research).

    I look forward to helping you with all of your reading and information needs!
