Information Literacy in Nova Scotia: Systematic Mapping of Learning Outcomes
MetadataShow full item record
Information literacy has never been more important for the functioning of the democratic process, and for autonomy over one’s decisions. The Association for College and Research Libraries (ACRL) created a framework for information literacy, which lists six threshold concepts that an information literate individual should understand. This paper seeks to identify when and how information literacy is embedded in the 2015-2021 Nova Scotia high school curriculum learning outcomes. Information literacy threshold concepts were mapped in the learning outcomes using qualitative coding. Codes were built based on the three integrated abilities found in the ACRL’s definition of information and their six threshold concepts. Findings from this study reveal where information literacy in embedded in the education system in Nova Scotia.
