This Prezi-based video explains information literacy, visually tracing an event through different kinds of formats. It also explains how different kinds of information sources are used. The closed-caption feature is also useful. I used this vido in my information and digital literacy course to explain the information cycle. Then I asked students to trace the information cycle for a different event.

Used in course? Yes
