Thanks to Dr. Selia Karsten for including -- 18. Eisenberg, Michael B. and Doug Johnson. "Learning and Teaching Information Technology Computer Skills in Context". Eric Digest. (September 2002): in the 1799readinglist 2003.

Michael B. Eisenberg and Doug Johnson have produced a fantastic paper. One I'd recommend as required reading for consumers, developers, educators, integrators, indeed all stakeholders of 'net-based learning.

The curriculum outlined on pages 2-3 of this ERIC Digest, "Technology Skills for Information Problem Solving," demonstrates how technology literacy skills can fit within an information literacy skills context (American Association of School Librarians, 1998). The baseline information literacy context is the Big6 process (see sidebar and Eisenberg & Berkowitz, 1988, 1992, 1999, 2000).

I'd say they deliver the goods. . . and then some.

A blueprint for individual and collective 'net-based knowledge building where all stakeholders address learning needs in a "self-serve"; "do-it-yourself"; "constructivist" fashion.

Happy Learning!
