Abstract

This research aimed at studying the information literacy promotion for high school students, developing information literacy promotion model and studying the use of the model. This mixed method   research was divided into three phases. The purposive sample consisted of documents, 132 key resource persons, administrators, teacher-librarians and teachers, and 24 senior high school students.

Qualitative data were analyzed using content analysis and presented descriptively while quantitative data were analyzed using frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviation.

Various forms have been conducted: the ICT course (computer science) which included information, media and digital literacy; a separate course with different names focusing on library use and research and report writing; the integration of information literacy in the learning standards, course content and leaning management; and student development activities. The world class standard schools offered “Independent Study Course” followed the information literacy process. The implementation of information literacy depends on various factors especially policies, management as well as school administrators, teachers and teachers-librarians, 2) The learner-centered information literacy promotion model for high school students focused on students  as the center of development, school administrators, teachers, teachers-librarians, with family and community base. All components had their main roles supporting each other, and 3) The results of the model trial, using three different activities in three schools in Bangkok and in the provinces confirmed the hypotheses that high school students were satisfied at the high level, and the developed model was appropriate at the high level rating by school administrators, teachers and teachers-librarians.
