Information Literacy Program

Surviving in the information age.

Information Literacy and Digital Citizenship

Information Literacy is considered as one of the necessary 21st century skills for students. To be information literate, one must acquire the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the information found. This school year, topics about Digital Citizenship were added to help our students participate fully in their communities, make smart choices online, and ultimately, take ownership of their digital lives.

This two-part program (Information Literacy and Digital Citizenship) is based on the Adaptive Design for Learning principles, and can be taken independently, in any order. All Information Literacy (ILP)  modules will be uploaded instantly to a Google Classroom that will be created for each class. These will serve as Reference Guides whenever our students do research online.

All ILP modules are also accessible through the AJHS Virtual Campus Site (

On the other hand, modules on Digital Citizenship will be scheduled and implemented during select Wednesday Class Moderators’ sessions. Since we interact in a digital world, all of us are considered digital citizens. However, how we behave online is not always clear, especially to students. Modules on digital citizenship talk about a holistic approach to helping students to participate fully in their communities, make smart choices online, and ultimately, take ownership of their digital lives.

Students who will complete the Digital Citizenship modules will be awarded with a digital badge from the Educational Media Center.
