Information Skills for Education Students

First Edition

January 2009 | 104 pages | Learning Matters
This study guide will help education students to locate, evaluate and make effective use of information, from what appears to be a growing and bewildering variety of sources. Both in and out of university, students are faced with increasingly diverse information choices. This book presents a practical and step-by-step approach to each of the six main skills which underpin information literacy. It also provides appropriate practical and reflective tasks, worked examples and top tips to help education students assess and develop their capacity to use information effectively, particularly in the planning and preparation of their course work.
