When we think of "information literacy", it sounds a lot like a "school word"- something that we only use in the context of academia. The reality is, this skill is necessary in every aspect of our lives. The amount of information that we view and process each day is staggering, which makes it even more important that everyone is able to form their own conclusions about what they see. Working with all participants in the learning process, I endeavor to ensure that students understand and internalize the ability to evaluate the information in front of them- no matter the application.
