Course Description

Information Skills and Digital Literacy

School Libraries play a vital role in ensuring all people have the skills and abilities to succeed in the Digital Age.  The ability to understand information and perform tasks in digital environments has become a key role of school librarians. 

We are delighted that Sarah Pavey will be leading this day.  Sarah is co-author of the Innovative School Librarian as well as the author of books for the Schools Library Association on mobile technology. In addition, she is a qualified trainer for the British Council Core Skills programme which includes digital literacy. 

Sarah will lead colleagues through the information skills and digital literacy by exploring themes including: 

  • how the librarian can work collaboratively to deliver a joint lesson for any researched based topic
     
  • effective lesson planning and research skills
     
  • incorporating online databases and eBooks, phone apps as well as more traditional print resources
     
  • academic honesty and referencing 

The day will be supported with handouts and links to downloads of the materials used. 

Please register as soon as possible and by Friday 3 November at the latest.

Registration from 9.30 a.m.
