A new resource, called the Empire State Information Fluency Continuum, is now available thanks to the NYC School Library System. This resource emphasizes the importance of inquiry in learning and establishes information fluency standards for grades K-12, which are aligned with Common Core Learning Standards. The fusion of the two sets of standards aims to create students who are capable of absorbing and applying appropriate information to any situation.

Thursday, November 6, 2014 from 10:00am to 2:30pm  the NYIT Educational Enterprise Zone (EEZ) will be facilitating a face-to-face training at the Albany Institute of History and Art. The training will focus on the process for successfully planning and executing an interactive and engaging webinar using BlackBoard Collaborate or Safari Montage Live.

Last month, Stan Silverman and Ed Murray from NYIT presented at the Uncommon Approaches to the Common Core Conference at the New York State Museum in Albany, NY. During the presentation they discussed how the Educational Enterprise Zone (EEZ) helps to support museums, libraries, science centers, and other cultural institutions build capacity to deliver programs using web-based distance learning tools.
