Digital Fluency

I like the Illinois Math and Science Academy's (IMSA) Digital Fluency Model.
Our job as librarians increasingly involves teaching students how digital information is different from print information and then giving them the skills to use a variety of tools for finding digital information,and knowing how to operate in a digital information environment. Our 2st Century researchers are truly "hunters and gatherers" and not note-takers in the traditional sense. The important thing for us as teachers is to ask the right kinds of questions (and teach them to ask questions) to focus their research.
