FRED Interactive: Information Literacy

Information literacy is the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning. In this interactive lesson, students practice information literacy skills related to three threshold concepts: Searching as strategic exploration, information has value, and research as inquiry.
