Here’s a great 15-minute educational video introducing information literacy to young people titled E-Literate developed as part of the UCLA Initiative for 21st Century Literacies.

I found it great to watch, with engaging use of graphics and images to convey the many ideas and understandings that underpin the notion of information literacy in the digital world. I particularly liked the way the video tackles a lot of the assumptions and “hype” that exists about these issues, and provides a really good platform for further discussion and investigation. I can see this being used by teachers, librarians, community leaders and parents to introduce 21st century literacies to young people.
