Abstract

Information is becoming more critical in this digital society. Encountering the information explosion with fake and misleading information, information literacy (IL) becomes indispensable for every citizen to process and evaluate information efficiently. Indeed, it is essential to put IL in the secondary ICT curriculum to ensure students abilities in their lives. In this study, an exploratory study was conducted by integrating IL into junior secondary ICT lessons to investigate the effectiveness of the integration. During the study, two classes of secondary three students participated in the integration in their regular ICT lessons. Students needed to complete a pre-test, post-test, and survey after four lessons of integrating IL into ICT lessons. Class observation and interview were also processed. In brief, the results showed that it is effective to integrate IL into ICT lessons. All the IL areas should be included in the curriculum to enhance students' information literacy efficiently and apply it in different situations.
