ECDL Foundation launched its latest module, Information Literacy at an event in Prague, Czech Republic, this month. The module covers the essentials of finding, evaluating and working with online information.
The module, which has already been successfully run in Asia, addresses the key need for young people to have the skills and competences to source, critically evaluate, and then work with information online. Whether as part of school work, preparation for further studies, or entering the workforce, these are essential skills.
Damien O’Sullivan, CEO of ECDL Foundation, said, “Young people need to have the skills to find information, assess it, and work with it. Whether they are working on a school project, preparing for further study, or entering the workforce, working with online information is a core competence in many areas of life these days. Our new Information Literacy module is a guarantee of those skills and competences.”
The module joins other newly launched ECDL Foundation modules, including Computing, ICT in Education and Digital Marketing.
