I’m going to be doing a presentation on information literacy in a few weeks, and I’m planning on looking at how new technologies can be used in information literacy instruction. I was thinking of looking at screencasting/flash tutorials (using camtasia, captivate, etc.), podcasting, wikis, blogging, rss, social bookmarking (del.icio.us, FURL, etc.), or anything else that I can’t think of at the moment. I’ve been reading Weblogg-ed a lot lately and all this stuff gets me so excited! I love the technology, but seeing how people are using it in education really makes me crazy. It makes my head spin (in a good way)! If any of my readers have any insights into the practical applications, have used these tools to instruct patrons at your library, or know of libraries that are doing it please comment on this post or contact me. Thanks!
