21st Century Student Skills
"Many have attempted to identify the skills important for a learner today in this era of the 21st century (I know it is an overused phrase). I have an affinity towards the skills identified by Tony Wagner
This post lists children’s books to help teach children and youth about these concepts. Some are even appropriate and applicable for adults. Children’s books, as they are written and presented as stories, have great potential to explain these often abstract concepts."

FactCheckEd.org is an educational resource for high school teachers and students.
It’s designed to help students learn to cut through the fog of misinformation and deception that surrounds the many messages they’re bombarded with every day.

How to deal with information overload
How to deal with information overload
At RSA 2008 in San Francisco, Malcolm Gladwell — author of The Tipping Point and Blink — tells security professionals why too much information can impair judgement.
As an example, he said emergency room doctors are much better at diagnosing chest pain accurately when they have only four data points (chest pain, instability, fluid in the lungs, and an electrocardiogram) instead of when they take into account factors such as patient age and whether the patient smokes.

What is Digital? (online video)
What is Digital? (online video)
The information revolution is based on one idea: that all information -- numbers, text, sound, pictures, and videos -- can be translated into a string of 1's and 0's. Of course, in some cases, it takes a LOT of 1's and 0's.

Noah is the first application to free your information from the separate "data islands" of your browser, email client, contact manager, file folders, schedule and RSS feeds. Noah bridges these currently divided data sources and makes it all accessible from a single interface. And your data is always available, online or offline.
Imagine being able to find an email, a website, or a business presentation that's years old with a few clicks. Now imagine finding all of these items, and more, associated with a specific business trip, or project all at the same time and displayed on a single screen. That's the power of Noah.

Library & Information Literacy Skills Document
Library & Information Literacy Skills Document online!
The RRLC Information Literacy Continuum Committee was formed to advance academic and school librarians' collaboration in promoting information literacy.
The group includes several school library media specialists from a variety of schools, and academic librarians. In an effort to provide students with the foundation needed for a successful transition from high school to college researching, the group developed a document called Library and Information Literacy Core Library Skills Grade 9-14+.
It introduces a basic set of skills and specific grade levels for introductory and mastery achievement.
Critical skill deficiencies are targeted. Presented as steps in the research process, the sequential model can be used as a guideline and teaching tool.
