Information Literacy Through Moodle
As discussed in the post Transparency Through Blogging I would like to repurpose Moodle at my workplace. I propose using a Moodle course management site (CMS) as a platform for information exchange about information literacy in high school students. Faculty are familiar with the technology, information can be archived, and cross-pollination of ideas across academic department lines would be possible. The CMS will be called RESEARCH (Research Articulation Community Home). It will start as a site for faculty only and eventually be shared with all school stakeholders.
