InfoLit India is a pilot project on Information Literacy (IL) for the new generation learners to make them the effective users of information available in any format.

Information literacy is defined as a set of skills, which require an individual to:

“recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information.”

The project aims at developing  the essential 21st century literacy skills (Information, Media and Library) in the students of Kendriya Vidyalaya Pattom, Thiruvananthapuram through instruction, training  and research.

InfoLit Logo’s Meaning

The logo image communicates, in a simple way, the human skills to search and access information, not only through traditional means, but also with the aid of information and communication technologies, since it uses graphical references that are recognized worldwide, as are the book and the circle. The first one is used to symbolize the study and the second to represent the knowledge and the information that nowadays arrive to us more easily thanks to the Internet, showing also its social role of communication.

The logo also represents a book, with its open pages, aside with the circle that integrates a visual metaphor, and that represents all those persons who own the cognitive skills to retrieve the information easily and to gain the knowledge that information provides. Discerning viewers may also see a lowercase “i” which is used internationally for information.

The IInfoLit logo is derived from the UNESCO Information Literacy logo.
