Information literacy can be hard to define. Personally, I think that being literate with information means that you can objectively think about who is giving the information they are reading, and tell if there are any biases being presented.
I think that it is possible to teach students information literacy skills. If we as educators show students the importance of learning about where the information they are taking in is coming from, and what to look for when making sure that information is as accurate as possible.
I do believe that we can prepare students to be effective technology users. To do this, however, we have to be effective users ourselves. I think a big issue when educators try to integrate technology in the classroom is they don’t know how to use everything to its full potential, which is essential for teaching students the best to your ability.
