An abundance of information is available to students across all different age groups. It is critical that from a young age, students are equipped with the skills to find, filter, and use information in the best way possible. Information literacy skills empower students to take ownership of their learning and can drive improvements to the way they learn and approach their learning.
Vicki Courtenay shares how she drew on Carol Kuhlthau’s “Information Search Process” to develop the Research Wheel that guides students through the research process step by step. She discusses the cognitive, physical and affective domains of each stage and how this can be built into different school curriculums.
