Schoolchildren developing their own IL models

A short online article from Andrew Shenton is interesting, in outlining a structure for helping school children develop their own model of information literacy. "There are several benefits of this approach – pupils are given the freedom to create a framework that suits their preferred learning style, reflection is promoted, and the prospect that the skills in question will be transferred across subjects and retained over time is increased."

Shenton credits James Herring with the idea of students developing their own frameowrk, citing:
