Fantasy Football: The Road to Information Literacy Championships

Thank you. Thank you for everyone that came to my presentation this morning at the Iowa ACRL conference. I was incredibly pleased with the turnout and the questions from the audience. The energy that the audience had was wonderful and it really seemed that people left with some new ideas about connecting information literacy to students.

The bridge metaphor isn't new. And I have to thank David Warlick for introducing me to the bridge metaphor. Fantasy football, video games, and many other cultural experiences contain useful information literacy skills that we can help our students recognize and build on.

For those asking and for everyone interested, here is the link to the powerpoint slides I used. Granted they were in widescreen format, so a few images might be off if you are not using 2007.

As always, any feedback, questions, or comments on the slides is welcomed.

Note: I started this post on Monday, but for a number of reasons it is going up late.
