Session at OLA / OASL April 2017: In this panel presentation school and academic librarians will discuss their work preparing students to be information literate. Building on the work initiated by the Information Literacy Advisory Group of Oregon (ILAGO), the panel will provide an overview of the current Oregon School Library Standards and AASL Standards for the 21st Century Learner and how they are applied in K-12 schools. They will also review the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy and effective strategies for implementation. In addition, school library media specialists will learn the level of information literacy skills and understanding that students need to be successful in their college or university studies. Panelists will address practical applications and challenges of teaching information literacy at all levels. This panel will open a conversation to encourage collaboration on the requirements and curricula essential to student success.
