At always learning, mscofino writes this about "streamlining conversations" and finding common ground between technology and information literacy:

Hey, here’s an idea:

If we are trying encourage all teachers to be multi-literate,
through constructive conversations, wouldn’t it be easier if the
information literacy specialist and the technology integration
specialist were one and the same person?

Doug Johnson raised a similar question back in January. The Recommended Standards for Information and Technology Literacy from Minnesota Educational Media Organization (MEMO) are an attempt to bridge the two worlds. Doug had a hand in crafting the MEMO standards, in fact.

As the folks at the Minnesota Department of Education go through the process of redrafting various  academic standards, they may be embedding the MEMO standards as a way to address technology and information literacy. They’re starting with a revision of the mathematics standards. Check it out.
