- Shaking up story time by Bartlomiej A. Lenart and Carla J. Lewis (Looks at the Philosophy for Children (P4C) method)
- What academics really think about information literacy by Deborah Stebbing, Jane Shelley, Mark Warnes, Carol McMaster ""We took a qualitative approach to this research, using semi-structured interviews with a convenience sample of participants drawn from nursing subjects and business subjects in a post-1992 university in the United Kingdom. The research questions asked about academics’ perception of IL, the impact of their discipline on IL and their view of the ideal information literate student. Six key areas of concern emerged around the teaching of IL: students transitioning into higher education, developing evaluation skills, the significance of the undergraduate major project and discipline differences, the information landscape and the perceived need for preparation for IL at work. The article discusses the findings, difficulties surrounding students achieving adequate IL and considerations for future practice in delivering focused IL support."
- How do teens learn to play video games? by Ruth S. Contreras-Espinosa, Carlos A. Scolari. "The aims of this article are to identify the main ILS ]informal learning strategies] that teens apply as they acquire and improve their video game literacy, and to develop a series of categories for analysing and classifying these informal learning experiences."
