Boosting Information Literacy Skills

Here is some news on information literacy from Brunei Darussalam. Dr. David Prescott of Universiti Brunei Darussalam gave two workshops at the 3rd CamTESOL conference on English Language Teaching in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. This is from the article Borneo Bulletin Online and it is titled Boosting information literacy skills.

The article notes, "The aim of Dr Prescott's workshops was to enable participants to experience an Internet search method, which is structured to help develop students' information literacy skills and improve their ability to use the information they find on the Internet effectively and appropriately. Participants in the workshop were directed to use the Internet to search for information on the topic of English language materials as found on several well-known ESL websites."
