ARCHIVE: Propay 1-2-3: MILI (Metronet Information Literacy Initiative) - Day One

  • Davis Center (various locations) 1250 West Broadway Avenue Minneapolis, MN, 55411 United States (map)

Overview

The primary goal of the Metronet Information Literacy Initiative (MILI) is to advance the teaching of information literacy skills in the classroom. Metronet created a teacher/librarian course that focuses on the research process and incorporating the Three Rs – Research, Reliable Resources and Responsible use – into the classroom instruction. Chromebooks, Google suite, web 2.0 tools, extensions, apps and more will be used to enhance student learning and teaching practice.

Participants will:

  • Supplement existing knowledge and practices with fresh new tools, supported by information literacy concepts.
  • Gain a strong foundation of ideas for the research process and be familiar with the Three Rs (research, reliable resources and responsible use).
  • Finish with best practices for incorporating these concepts into classroom instruction.
