So much to read, so much to process!

My colleagues on the forum have helped me crystallize my views so I will quote them here:

Irene Lu: Thu 14-Apr-11 11:03 pm – her definition:

Information literacy involves the combination of information skills, (i.e identify, formulate, locate, access, communicate, reflect) cognitive processes (i.e critIcal thinking, higher order thinking, metacognition) and attitudes (i.e lifelong learning, valuing knowledge).

Mary-Louise McInerney: Mon 18-Apr-11 09:55 am – her definition based on keywords:
1. critical thinking process;
2. problem solving behaviours;
3. independent lifelong learning
