Digital and Information Literacy: Set 3

Digital and Information Literacy

Literacy is no longer simply the ability to read and interpret information. With the arrival of the Information Age, the Internet, and personal and mobile computing devices, young people are now inundated daily with information from many sources--and they are expected to be savvy at processing this information. Literacy now involves a range of specialized skills; students must be visually literate, digitally literate, and technologically literate. Students must also learn how to apply ethical standards to the process--respecting the intellectual content, personal feelings, and safety of all members of the cyber-community, including his or her own. This exceptional series provides readers with a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of digital information gathering, content generating, social networking, and cyber-ethics (in academic, professional, and personal contexts). Each book is written in an engaging, helpful tone and is supported by sidebars and a full resource section for further exploration.

Collection Review: Digital and Information Literacy
"The books are well laid out with a clean design template, sidebars and relevant illustrations. The information on advanced searching, how search engines work, and types of websites will be new to many students...a great resource when introducing research projects, or to have available in the tech lab. RECOMMENDED."

Series Review: Digital and Information Literacy, Set 3
"This third set in the Digital and Information Literacy series goes beyond the basics to explore the newest digital media. Though each title is a broad overview of a sometimes-complex subject, the detail is significant--probably about as much as middle-school students will be willing to tackle. Touches of blue enhance the clean design, and each book includes a section called "Myths and Facts" as well as a list of 10 questions to ask an expert."
