Adding value to LTS Information Literacy Online Service:  Exemplars of good practice

The project aims to identify exemplars of good practice within the cross curricular area of information literacy for dissemination through the LTS (Learning and Teaching Scotland) Online Service which offers an important mechanism to keep education authority and school staff informed and supported

The addition of these exemplars will add value to the LTS Online Service by:

  • facilitating access to practitioners’ good practices and classroom resources within this important cross curricular area
  • demonstrating how specific information literacy competencies can be applied in practice
  • identifying exemplars linked to different levels within the curriculum, subjects and resources
    • the exemplars will be matched against the National Information Literacy Framework Scotland standards being developed; a copy of which will be made available to LTS for publication as part of the information literacy section of the LTS Online Service
  • the exemplars and the framework will provide school teachers with an identified standard of information literacy skills at the identified levels and contribute to the development of information literacy and media literacy skills among school pupils
  • providing resources that will contribute to the development of GLOW
  • providing information for education managers within this important cross         curricular area
  • sharing expertise from library and information science research to education in a key area for the 21st Century.       

The work will be informed by, advised and supported by Project partners:            

  • North Lanarkshire Council, Education Resource Service
  • Information and Learning Resources, City of Edinburgh Council, Children and Families Department
  • North Ayrshire Education Resources Service
