Title: Mobile Learning Innovation in Information Literacy Skills Training
Author: Schmidt Hanbidge, Alice; Sanderson, Nicole; Tin, Tony
Abstract: The Mobile Information Literacy (MIL) tool is a user-friendly literacy app to help university students hone their information literacy skills through mobile technology. Academic literature emphasized the value of teaching information literacy skills, clearly linked with critical thinking skills, as part of a comprehensive university education (Kim, 2013). Undergraduate students often lack the valuable information literacy skills that faculty want them to have (DaCosta, 2010). The project supports the design and development of the MIL Tool and explored the best strategies for delivering and accessing learning content on mobile devices. Testing of the tool determined the effectiveness of using mobile technology to enhance students’ information literacy skills. Information literacy eLearning lessons are designed to demonstrate how to locate, evaluate, and use information effectively.
