The primary goal of the Metronet Information Literacy Initiative is to advocate for the integration of the MEMO Recommended Standards for Information and Technology Literacy in Minnesota schools and to advance the teaching of literacy skills in the classroom. To do this, Metronet has created teacher/media specialist training that focuses on the 5 steps of the research process and incorporating the Three RsResearch, Reliable Resources, and Responsible Useinto classroom instruction. Web 2.0 toolsblogs, wikis, online collaboration tools, and moreare included in the instruction in context and where using these tools enhances student learning and teaching.
In the 2008-09 school year, 26 teachers and media specialists from District 112 and 28 teachers and media specialists from Minneapolis Public Schools are participating in the program. Each cohort had 2 full days of training in August and meets each month from September to May for two hour training sessions after school.
