Information Literacy in the News!

New Jersey Becomes First State To Mandate K-12 Students Learn Information Literacy from Politico (January 2023). 

Gov. Phil Murphy on Wednesday signed legislation, NJ S.B. 588 (22R)/NJ A.B. 4169 (22R), that will make New Jersey the first state to require that K-12 students learn about how information is produced and spread on the internet, critical thinking skills, the difference between facts and opinions and the ethics of creating and sharing information both online and in print.

Would you like to schedule an information literacy session for your course? Contact Julie Peters for more information.
