Abstract

Capitalizing on students' enthusiasm for Web 2.0 tools, two librarians at a diverse, urban university sought to bridge the gap between surfing MySpace and navigating information-rich academic environments. This session will showcase a unique approach to teaching information literacy alongside emerging technologies. Using tools such as blogs, RSS, and social tagging to bolster key information literacy concepts, two teaching librarians redesigned a traditional, classroom-centered course for a web 2.0 world. An analysis of successes and setbacks will be featured, including student responses and survey data, along with strategies for helping students overcome tech-anxiety. Educators and trainers curious about applying web tools to instruction will gain practical tips and insights.
