Abstract

Redesign of a 'required' technology course necessitates research on new issues and technologies that may have emerged over the course of time. One such issue for technology using teachers is the issue of information literacy and the critical need for educating teacher education students to not only become critical consumers of information but also to be prepared to address this issue in their classrooms. This paper discusses an activity designed for elementary and early childhood education students focusing them on becoming critical consumers of online information and tells the story of their growth through the semester after the completion of this assignment.
