Sharon Bede Mount Boucherie Secondary 2003 Project by Lindsay Loyd, Grade 12
What is Information Literacy The way of researching and knowing the steps to follow to get the research done efficiently Learning how to locate and access the information needed for the particular topic being researched Evaluating the information Learning how to use and communicate the information
o What is my research challenge? Purpose o What are the critical questions? o Who is my audience? o What do I know? What do I need to know? o What could my product be? o How will I plan my time?
FOCUS Beginning a research project requires FOCUS on the research task, your purpose for the research, and consideration of your audience.
FOCUS You must take time to consider: what you already know, what you need to know, what your final product will look like and the generation of new ideas, before you create the plan to reach your goals.
FOCUS In order to do so, you might want to make outlines, list ideas, brainstorm, create webs, make mind maps, or search for subjects on the web.
FOCUS Just remember to keep your mind clear and focus on the research task ahead. You will then be able to Find and Filter the information gathered.
FIND AND FILTER Locate different types of resources. Decide which resources might be suitable. Select most appropriate resources. Revise research questions if necessary.
FIND AND FILTER Once you have focused on your topic and task at hand, you need to consider the sources that are available to you.
FIND AND FILTER Print or electronic resources You may interview to get the information you need Books or videos may also be used.
FIND AND FILTER After gathering your resources you must locate specific items and then decide which of these will be the most useful.
FIND AND FILTER You must make sure you evaluate the resource for authority and accuracy. Then begin making notes and summaries, organizing information into graphic organizers, and recording the bibliographic information.
WORK WITH THE INFORMATION Read, view, listen. Interpret, record, and organize. Look for patterns, make connections. Check for understanding. Review, revise, reorganize, edit.
WORK WITH THE INFORMATION This stage is the draft stage.
WORK WITH THE INFORMATION You need to work with the information until it is your own.
WORK WITH THE INFORMATION This means that instead of copying it out, you will interpret the data, synthesize and analyze the ideas you find, make connections between sources and ideas, ask more questions, and look for deeper understanding.
You must organize, reorganize, and reshape the ideas to make sure that the new meaning is well captured. WORK WITH THE INFORMATION
COMMUNICATE Prepare final results Share ideas, knowledge, product. Act on findings. Begin to put all the research together.
COMMUNICATE You must make the final decisions about effectively communicating what you have found in order to demonstrate how much you have done and learned.
COMMUNICATE To do this you must use various document and format features, charts, graphs, imported images, drawing or web design tools, multimedia presentations, group rehearsals to prepare your final product.
o What did I learn about the topic? o What worked well? o What will I do differently next time? o What did I learn about the research ?
REFLECT Consider whether your task was successful, whether the process was effective or there are changes that would improve future tasks.
REFLECT To reflect, you may be asked to engage in class discussion, write a journal, produce a checklist, use a self-evaluation chart, gather feedback from readers or viewers as peer evaluation.
Summary Information Pre-search Resources come in many formats. Books Videotapes Encyclopedias Vertical files Compact discs Maps, pictures, charts, diagrams Online sources Almanacs Subject-specific handbooks Methods of communicating information Written report oral presentation, interview display, model essay maps, charts, graphs, pictures debate, seminar videotape HyperCard editorial, newspaper collage demonstration, photographs
Summary Information Retrieval o computer and/or card catalogue o CD ROM o internet o e-mail o encyclopedia indexes o computer databases o bibliographies o telephone and other directories o et al (past, present, and future) Information Filtering and Evaluation * Analyze appropriateness of resources * Evaluate reliability of resources * Recognize that information can be slanted through sources, viewpoint, and time * Re-evaluate or monitor research strategy
Summary Information Processing » Identify and use appropriate strategies and skills for extracting and recording information » Identify and apply given strategies and skills for interpreting and compiling information from several sources » Evaluate whether information need has been met » Re-evaluate or monitor research strategy as needed Communicating Information ~ Create a presentation in rough draft appropriate to the end product ~ Document copyrighted materials in recognized bibliographic and footnoting formats ~ Communicate the information and demonstrate knowledge gained ~ Evaluate the finished product
