Information Literacy

Information Literacy [IL] is the acquisition, interpretation, and dissemination of information. IL encompasses effective methods for locating, evaluating, using, and generating ideas and information. The focus of IL is to help DoDEA students become critical consumers of information enabling them to effectively evaluate information; then successfully apply their knowledge to decision-making, problem-solving, and creative pursuits.

The DoDEA School Library Information Center program:  

  • Provides access to print and non-print resource materials that are aligned to the DoDEA curriculum.
  • Facilitates library services and literacy programming that fosters a love of reading.
  • Defines the essential information literacy skills required for student achievement in the 21st century.
  • Collaborates with educators to design learning strategies and deliver instruction that meets the needs of the military child.
