This week in class, we had 45 minutes to create an infographic or other visual representation of the questions we had after choosing our readings on the topic of information literacy. You can see mine above. To create this, I used www.canva.com, which Krista found.
I liked getting a chance to try this new tool, and to challenge myself to create a visual that represents what I was left wondering about in regards to youth information literacy and information literacy in schools. The experience itself was a sort of exercise in information literacy in learning how to use Canva and to create an image that would make sense not only to me but to others. I mostly used words in this image, but I put them in word bubbles and tried to put related questions near each other.
The exercise was also useful because it made me think about questions that I had. Sometimes I don’t come up with questions about a class or a conversation or some readings until much later, and then only if I really reflect on what I was hearing/seeing/doing. In making this graphic, I was forced to reflect and therefore I really did think about what questions I had. I had some idea after doing my blog post on the readings, but this made me articulate them. All in all, I liked doing this activity in class and would be open to doing it again if possible.
