Podcast Spreading the gospel of information Literacy

Joyce Kasman Valenza’s podcast focuses on the necessity for students to have information literacy skills when leaving high school. She equates the way students search now with search engines to the “fast food” of the internet. They grab the first two hits on Google and call it adequate. She proclaims the need for students to acquire these skills in high school by incorporating the whole school in the process of teaching information literacy skills. With a vested interest students will become better searchers and it will benefit them throughout their lives.
