Title: There Are Many Ways: New Approaches to Teaching Information Literacy
Date: Wed, 28th May 2008
Mark McBride, Ken Fujiuchi and Mike (student) of Buffalo State College Library present their experience using customized portable apps on USB flashdrives as open spaces for students to freely explore with web technology for research goals. They offered this in a research class, as a possible solution to an otherwise closed school computing environment where students couldn’t install their own applications and web browser plugins for their work. This initiative is intended to spur new modes of knowledge creation.
