The Big6 Curriculum: Comprehensive Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Literacy for All Students
Thursday October 29, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Presented by Dr. Mike Eisenberg, co-author of the Big6 Approach to Information Problem Solving with Janet Murray, retired teacher-librarian
Sponsored by Libraries Unlimited
Introducing the newest implementation of the Big6 and Super3! Big6 by the Month is an information, communications and technology (ICT) literacy program that is practical, easy to implement, flexible, and essential. Mike Eisenberg and Janet Murray presented this Big6 by the Month webinar for educators preK-20—especially teacher-librarians—focused on meeting the ICT literacy needs of 21st Century students.
Learn how to use the Big6 Skills approach in a defined, predictable, measured and reported program. This presentation focused on the defined and predictable aspects of the program.
The Big6 by the Month curriculum is defined in terms of ICT Literacy and subject area standards which describe what students should know and be able to do. The Big6/Super3 approach helps students achieve standards by developing transferable skills and strategies. The Big6 by the Month curriculum is also predictable because each month of the school year is devoted to one of the Big6 Skills. Based on content from the forthcoming book, the webinar includes sample lesson plans, program planning guidelines, and templates to develop your own ICT literacy program.

Janet Murray has used the Big6 Skills to help students become “information literate” since she created an online matrix and web page of activities linking the Big6 to national information literacy standards in 1999. She was the lead instructor for an online course using the Big6 Skills to achieve content, information literacy and NETS standards from 2003-2008, and subsequently published Achieving Educational Standards Using the Big6 (Linworth, 2008). She has been part of the Big6 by the Month team since its inception. Follow her on Twitter @B6Janet.
