Hi everyone First of all, thanks to all concerned in setting up everything.
My involvement in Information Literacy goes back more years than I like to remember. While I worked in Govan High School, Glasgow, I developed a lot of ways of addressing information literacy issues and raised concerns about some assumptions that were being made - http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storycode=2063315 will give more details.
I took early retirement in 2010, but was invited to join the London-based Information Literacy Task Force co-ordinated by Tricia Adams from the School Library Association. I am also still on the Scottish Parliament's Cross-Party Group on Digital Participation and I am involved in this Community of Practice and these other organisations, because I think information literacy, and the skills it can foster, are crucial and too often neglected, and I am keen to work with fellow members of The Right Information Community of Practice and anyone else, to address these issues.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
