Mobile information literacy – Let’s use an app for that!
“As librarians, we are responsible for teaching students how to become information literate. The goal of information literacy classes is to turn students into independent thinkers by teaching them different ways of accessing, evaluating, and using information. Typically, our classes teach students how to find an appropriate book, decipher whether a Web site is trustworthy, and can be used for a paper, and, of course, search academic databases. But aren’t we forgetting something? Our students are already using their mobile devices for everything — why not also teach them how access information by using their phones?”
