The Big6 is the most widely known and used information skills program in the world because it works! The Big6 is essential, practical, and easy to implement—from day one. And, with a completely new book, The Big6 Curriculum, focusing on the needs of 21st-century students, schools, and library programs, the Big6 continues to be fully relevant and cutting-edge.

In this webinar, Mike Eisenberg and Colet Bartow helped educators preK–20, especially teacher-librarians, to design and deliver curriculum and instruction to meet the ICT literacy needs of 21st-century students. Learn how to use the Big6 curriculum approach to provide a clearly defined, predictable, measured and reported program. In addition, this webinar focused on strategies and tools for assessment, reporting, and gaining widespread buy-in for the program.

Based on content from the new book, this recorded session included sample lesson plans, program planning guidelines, templates, and examples from practice in order to help you develop and provide your own ICT literacy program.

This recorded webinar will be useful for instructional leaders, teacher-librarians, and teachers.
