New Knowledge Brokers: The Invisible Influence #lib2013 http://youtu.be/yLvm9RBMbak New Knowledge Brokers: The Invisible Influence #lib2013 Keynote by Dr Jocelyn Cranefield
School of Information Management, University of Wellington
In a world where the vast majority of digital content is generated by individuals, what role do brokers play? Jocelyn will consider the role and value of knowledge brokers in today’s information-rich, tool-intensive, world. She will examine how individuals can play pivotal roles in filtering, combining, appropriating and redistributing user-generated information amongst online communities and networks, and across online/offline boundaries.

How College Students seek information : Report http://ow.ly/Lni1 How College Students seek information in the digital age.
A report of findings from 2,318 respondents to a survey carried out among college
students on six campuses distributed across the U.S. in the spring of 2009, as part of Project Information Literacy.
The findings suggest that students conceptualize research, especially tasks associated with
seeking information, as a competency learned by rote, rather than as an opportunity to learn,
develop, or expand upon an information-gathering strategy which leverages the wide range of
resources available to them in the digital age.

The high cost of not finding information http://www.kmworld.com/Articles/ReadArticle.aspx?ArticleID=9534 The high cost of not finding information
We know that roughly 50% of most Web searches are abandoned.
That translates into 50% fewer online sales, 50% more frustrated customers trying to solve a problem or get information, and 50% more phone calls that must be handled by a person rather than by automatic systems.
At an average cost of $5 per phone call as opposed to less than $1 per automated call or mere pennies for finding an answer online, that is expensive.
This page also gives some useful examples of where money was wasted through wrong information being found or given

We live in an 'information age'. However, the prevalence of new information technologies across the curriculum, and in most pupils' homes, does not mean that we can take information literacy for granted.
It is intended to provide you with ideas and exemplars for developing your own information skills programme, tailored to your particular teaching environment and learner needs.

US researchers estimate that every year 800MB of information is produced for every person on the planet.
Their study found that information stored on paper, film, magnetic and optical disks has doubled since 1999.

This study is an attempt to estimate how much new information is created each year. Newly created information is distributed in four storage media ?print, film, magnetic, and optical ?and seen or heard in four information flows ?telephone, radio and TV, and the Internet. This study of information storage and flows analyzes the year 2002 in order to estimate the annual size of the stock of new information contained in storage media, and heard or seen each year in information flows.

21st Century Information Fluency Project Portal http://21cif.com/ 21st Century Information Fluency Project Portal
Welcome to the 21st Century Information Fluency (21cif) Portal. This site provides news, information, tools, and standards-aligned instructional strategies for information literacy/fluency in K-16
21st Century Information Fluency is a sub-set of Information Literacy that might best be described as a combination of aspects of Information Literacy and Technology Literacy that people need to locate, evaluate and use digital information resources efficiently and effectively.
We call it ?luency?rather than ?iteracy?to emphasize that the abilities involved are more than basic abilities. But we know that there is a spectrum of abilities ranging from basic literacy to the more advanced levels we call fluency.
Our goal is to help people move along that scale no matter where they start. To do that we need to understand just what it is that people need to know and be able to do to achieve 21st Century Information Fluency.
On the basis of our investigations we have created a description that serves to guide us as we develop learning materials, tools and experiences designed to help others become fluent.. Ours is only one way of organizing this information. It is intended as a practical guide more than a theoretical construct.

Information Skills Curriculum http://www.ncpublicschools.org/curriculum/infotech/ Information Skills Curriculum
The Information Skills Standard Course of Study K-12 identifies the essential knowledge and skills that prepare students to locate, analyze, evaluate, interpret, and communicate information and ideas in an information-rich society. Authentic practice of these skills enables students to realize their potential as informed citizens who think critically and solve problems, to observe rights and responsibilities relating to the generation and flow of information and ideas, and to appreciate the value of literature in an educated society.
The Information Skills Standard Course of Study helps students develop skills to be information literate.

NoodleTools - 21st Century Literacies http://www.noodletools.com/debbie/ NoodleTools - 21st Century Literacies - Tools for Reading the World
In Intelligence Reframed Howard Gardner contends that ?iteracies, skills, and disciplines ought to be pursued as tools that allow us to enhance our understanding of important questions, topics, and themes.? Today's readers become literate by learning to read the words and symbols in today's world and its antecedents. They analyze, compare, evaluate and interpret multiple representations from a variety of disciplines and subjects, including texts, photographs, artwork, and data. They learn to choose and modify their own communication based on the rhetorical situation. Point of view is created by the reader, the audience and the medium.

Assessing Information Problem-Solving Skills http://fno.org/oakharbor.html Information Power (1989) suggested a bold research agenda for classroom teachers and library media specialists working in partnership to engage students in serious investigation and inquiry, but those in the field who wish to measure the success of students as they pursue this agenda find few assessment models available.
