Where Teaching and Learning Matter
This article http://ascilite.org.au/ajet/ajet26/kilik-cakmak.html
ties in quite nicely with the results of the Ministry of Education project on
digital information literacy from Diana (above). As a result of a study done on eLearners at Gazi
University in Turkey the author suggests a number of strategies that lecturers
can undertake to improve the information literacy self-efficacy, motivation and
learning of eLearners. These include using metacognitive strategies to foster self-efficacy and self-regulation and using elaboration strategies to
encourage students to integrate information - to make the relevant connections.
The article recommends developing student digital literacy competencies by
giving tasks that develop critical thinking and self-managing skills as well as
those that develop motivational and learning strategies in eLearners.
