Training-the-Trainers in Information Literacy: UNESCO

UNESCO continued the series of information literacy workshops it has been offering worldwide. The last stop was in Wuhan, China. It was held from October 21st to the 23rd.

UNESCO Assistant Director-General Abdul Waheed Khan is quoted as follows:

"21st century’s skills and abilities to learn how to learn and constantly update and challenge the own knowledge. The concept of information literacy becomes clearly a central element for building knowledge societies as it enables people to search for, retrieve, organize, analyze, evaluate information and then use it for specific decision-making and problem-solving ends."
