NEW ONLINE MAGAZINE FOR TEACHERS OF INFORMATION LITERACY SKILLS

S.O.S for Information Literacy  announces the premier issue of Educators' 
Spotlight Digest, the first multimedia, online magazine dedicated to 
providing information and ideas to teachers of information literacy skills.

Located at http://www.sosspotlight.org/, the contents of the inaugural 
issue include:

*       a feature story on how kids are using the Web;
*       news about relevant information literacy projects and activities;
*       tips on how to address copyright issues;
*       successful motivational teaching strategies submitted by library 
media specialists;
*       valuable resources available through AASL;
*       an article by a guest contributor on transforming research on 
student motivation into effective teaching strategies;
*       amusing and poignant teaching anecdotes by a veteran classroom 
teacher; and
*       archived issues of the publication in its previous format

Educators' Spotlight Digest is edited by Marilyn Arnone, research associate 
professor in the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University. Ruth 
V. Small, professor and director of Syracuse University's Center for 
Digital Literacy, is associate editor. Educators' Spotlight Digest, 
published three times per year, is a free, online publication of S.O.S. for 
Information Literacy, a project of Syracuse University's Center for Digital 
Literacy, in collaboration with the American Association of School 
Librarians (AASL) and funded by the Institute of Museum and Library 
Services (IMLS).

S.O.S. for Information Literacy is a dynamic web-based multimedia resource 
for educators, currently in development, that promises to make a 
significant contribution to enhancing the teaching of information literacy 
skills to children. At no time in history has the ability to locate, 
organize, evaluate, manage and use information been more critical for 
today's learners. These skills, collectively referred to as information 
literacy, lay the groundwork for success in every phase of a student's life 
both in and out of school.

The "SOS" in the title of the project means more than a call to action to 
enhance information literacy instruction. It stands for Situation (e.g., 
grade level, curricula area), Outcome (e.g., information skill(s) to be 
learned), and Strategies (e.g., teaching ideas or specific techniques and 
strategies to achieve a desired outcome). The educator can input the 
situation and desired outcomes, and the information system will suggest 
possible motivational teaching strategies when a strategy search is used.
