Title:Technology and the Concept of Information Literacy for Pre-Service Teachers
Author(s):Hinchliffe, Lisa Janicke
Subject(s):pre-service education, technology, information literacy
Abstract:Through an examination of a variety of information literacy documents and an analysis of supporting materials, the author argues that the impact of technology on the conceptualization of information is two-fold: technology serves as a catalyst for developing a rationale for the importance of the concept and as a mechanism for focusing attention on specific issues within the broader concept of information literacy. Though the discussion is contextualized within the field of education, the majority of the ideas raised apply to information literacy for any discipline or profession. The chapter ends with a discussion of additional considerations related to information literacy and digital technologies within the field of education.
