ABSTRACT
S.O.S. for Information Literacy is a comprehensive, Web-based, multimedia resource for helping educators become better prepared to teach students (K-16) to be information literate citizens of the twenty-first century. This chapter documents the predevelopment research and ongoing development, management, and evaluation process for S.O.S. and the impact of decisions made. Educators identify relevant Situation-specific variables (5) and desired instructional Outcomes (0), and subsequently a variety of instructional Strategies (5) are generated as part of a multimedia database of lesson plans and real-world examples, including photographic and video demonstrations. S.O.S. continues to be responsive to advancing technology and includes system feedback mechanisms for direct user input for ongoing evaluation and improvement, a Web-based project management system, and an online lesson-building tool. This chapter describes the front-end research effort, the S.O.S. database and its features, and the project's unique approach to project management and evaluation—information that may prove useful to other project designers and developers. S.O.S. for Information Literacy is funded by a National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
