This was a lively discussion on Mobile apps for learning.
We looked at apps from an information literacy perspective, including:
- Why are we interested in apps?
- How do we find and use the best quality apps?
The Information Literacy Community of Practice (CoP) meets regularly throughout the year. The CoP offers support to any staff member who is interested in encouraging students to develop information literacy or research skills. The membership of the CoP is wider than just library staff, other interested staff from across Unitec also belong to the CoP.
Since it began in 2010, the CoP has covered topics ranging from ‘the technology petting zoo’ to ‘learning cycles in teaching’ to ‘the best things in life are free’.
