"Free eBook from Center for Digital Literacy Includes Lesson Plans for AASL’s Standards for the 21st-Century Learner
September 28, 2010 — Bobbi Newman

From the Creative Minds of 21st Century Librarians is CDL’s first e-book project made possible in part through an IMLS grant awarded to CDL in 2008 to update the AASL standards in the S.O.S. for Information Literacy database.

This 275-page free downloadable resource contains dozens of lesson plans that implement AASL’s Standards for the 21st-Century Learner in the context of the curriculum. Contributing authors include more than 30 teacher-librarians. The book, edited by Marilyn P. Arnone, Ruth V. Small, and Barbara K. Stripling, was more than a year in the making and features a foreword by Barbara Stripling and graphic design by Marguerite Chadwick-Juner. If you are looking for creative ideas that target the standards to implement in your school library, this book will help you jumpstart the process.

The Center for Digital Literacy (CDL) is an interdisciplinary, collaborative research and development center at Syracuse University dedicated to:

(1) understanding the impact of information, technology and media literacies on children and adults (particularly those from underserved populations) in today’s technology-intensive society.

(2) studying the impact having or not having these literacies has on people, organizations, and society.

This interdisciplinary approach allows us to look at issues from a variety of perspectives and to exchange ideas that broaden and enlighten approaches to research in this area."

Digital Literacy

Thank You and the all World Pulse Community for this beautiful work. When I started my Place with Internet for women in Milange, I thought I was a rebel. I thought there was something wrong with me for thinking that in a remote at the same time rura area like Milange with so many people living without water medication and human homes Internet couls have a chance. Actually everybody said: " That Woman is silly she think she is in America". I lived most of my time in Europe, but everyone I meet think that I live in America.

I am so glad I`am to know that i was not alone, and I am no longer alone. Thank you America. Thank you World Pulse. I also thank my mother who I have not seen for 12 years for the courage and strength she gives me even though not in contact with me duo to my political activities.
