When reading (Maniotes and Kuhlthau, 2014) Making the shift there was one line that really stood out to me and resonated with me and my teaching practise “Typical assignments limit students’ ability to learn from a variety of sources and often result in a simple copying exercise”. I have grappled with this problem as a classroom teacher for a long time, designing tasks to try to solve this problem. However, I can now see how utilising the GID information literacy model can address this.
