Big6 and tech skills - revised

One of the writings of which I have always been most proud is the document "Computer Skills for Information Problem-Solving: Learning and Teaching Technology in Context." (1996, 2002) Co-authored with library gurus Mike Eisenberg and Bob Berkowitz, it's been one of the most widely used resources in our field. And for good reason - it's both visionary and practical. (Said in all modesty!)

I am delighted to say that thanks to Mike's urging, we've now created an updated version - "Information, Communications, and Technology (ICT) Skills Curriculum Based on the Big6 Skills Approach to Information Problem-Solving." It's available here:

I hope you find it helpful in your work.

Excellent! Documentation and support for what we all need to be doing. We have just created an updated Information Skills curriculum, based on the AASL standards and including the Big 6 research skills. We can include this in our presentations to each of the schools. Thank you so much!
