Review Jamaican National Standards Based Curriculum for the inclusion of Information Literacy and School Library

The Library and Information Association of Jamaica is requesting a review of the new JAMAICAN NATIONAL STANDARDS BASED CURRICULUM for the inclusion of information literacy and the school library.

Libraries have been, for many years, advancing the SDGs and one such area is through its involvement in information literacy. The new curriculum does not include the teacher librarians who have been instrumental and as such we are seeking a review for their inclusion.

The school library plays an important role in the delivery of the curriculum at both the primary and the secondary levels. The IFLA School Library Guidelines states that the goal of all school libraries is to develop information literate students who are responsible and ethical participants in society. Information literate students are competent self-directed learners who are aware of their information needs and actively engage in the world of ideas. They display confidence in their ability to solve problems and know how to locate relevant and reliable information. They are able to manage technology tools to access information and to communicate what they have learned. They are able to operate comfortably in situations where there are multiple answers or no answers. They hold high standards for their work and create quality products. Information literate students are flexible, able to adapt to change, and able to function both individually and in groups (IFLA, 2015).
