Information literacy is the ability to recognize needed information and how to use this information successfully. This means two different things for teachers and students. Teachers have to find and research the online sources they use in their classes in order to be able to properely teache their class. This is less serious for students because the only real risk the student risks is their grade, and the problem of looking unintelectual saying abraham lincon was a vampire slayer. However the sollution for these problems are the same Information and communication technology literacy. Basically everyone needs to realize that not all information is accurate and trustworthy and like our class assignment has taught me I am very stubborn and don't believe I can ever trust the internet again thank you goodnight. :)
Tech tool: LibriVox
LibriVox is a helpfull tool especially in todays education system. Students are reading less and less and its not just the special needs students who are falling behind, all students need assisted help when it comes to reading. LibriVox provides that little boost of assistance wether its listening and learning how to follow along and enunciate correctly, or its the access to all the multiple languages.
Summary: Overall this chapter warns of the right and wrong way to gain information from off the web. It explains how there are three different types of search engine search tools:
Free Text: Free text search is bassically like your search engine looking at you and saying bro I
Keyword: A keyword search is like asking your teacher or professor for help. You already know the
Question you are asking about and your teacher
is more than willing to assist you with specific
Boolean Search: The last from of search I feel is like monkey logic search.
The search engine basically needs you to tell it every little piece of information it will use and not use so hence forth like every programmer will be able to tell you it makes you question the paths you have chosen in life.
