Big Questions on Information Literacy

To follow up on my post about literacy, I am also inspired by Ewan's post on information literacy.

" What needs to change when our students can publish to a worldwide audience?

How does a teacher's role change when we can bring primary sources into the classroom?

How do we define literacy in a world where we must not only know how to read and write but to edit and create and publish?

Some answers.. Teachers need to be…

Content creators
Mentors to critical thinking
Change agents"

I would suggest that teachers also need to be…..

Mentors for developing a love of reading
Personal tutors encouraging a "PB" approach
Promotors of creativity
