Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The appropriate use of technology affords opportunities to create information-rich environments and to change how people interact with information and with each other in those settings. This article discusses general issues related to technology-rich learning environments and the roles for technology in creating a community of learners, suggesting that instruction for information literacy "takes a virtual village." This article also examines the crucial relationship between information literacy, discovery learning, and constructivist pedagogy, arguing that technology serves as a catalyst for qualitatively different teaching and learning processes and roles for educators.
