Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
In this presentation, hear about the importance of data, visual and media literacies in today's global society. Why should students learn or develop these skills? As a librarian, it is important to train students to think critically and to search for information effectively but to also help them understand how to interpret data, decode visuals and to decipher media in a world that is bombarded with all kinds of information, statistics and images. The presenter will address how librarians today can offer support to teach these new skills creatively for students to understand and become better thinkers and leaders of tomorrow. Learn about the differences among the three literacies, why they are important and how you can create and integrate this strategy into your lesson plans to teach these skills in this fast changing world.
