Information Literacy: Finding What You Need, Needing What You Find

We have an astounding level of accessibility to information. In many cases our access to information can occur across a myriad of technological devices including  a computer, a tablet device, a mobile device, and a smartphone. Given the mass quantities of information available, it is vital for us to develop strategies for not only finding what we need, but also being able to effectively filter out what we don't. This keynote will focus on identifying appropriate strategies for Information Literacy and why these skill sets are critical for both our students and us. In addition, the keynote will identify appropriate methodologies for applying critical thinking skills to evaluate content.
