English in Aotearoa #083

Information Literacy

This issue has a focus on Information Tech.. no, Information Sys.. no, Information Literacy. (I forget the name because I still think of it as Research.) This has been an interesting topic. The NZATE Council agreed on this as a theme because it was an area in which many teachers wanted help and advice, and as a result it was hard for me to persuade teachers to write something. Yet it is a critical area, not just for English teachers, and I think it always has been: how could you judge the veracity of what you were being told in 2nd century Rome or 12th century England; how could you judge what you read in the Taranaki Herald of 1854 or The Truth of 1954? The difference now is the huge volume of information and the fact that so much online material has not been filtered through a publisher.
