VEGA DIAZ, Guadalupe; ROJAS-DRUMMOND, Sylvia  and  MAZON PARRA, Nancy Constantina. Appropriation of abilities to assess information: a study with primary students. Investig. bibl [online]. 2008, vol.22, n.45, pp.79-103. ISSN 2448-8321.

Results of a study on appropriation abilities in 6th primary graders. The paper describes briefly the socio-cultural theory emphasizing the social practices and language to promote learning. The Wang & Soergel model (1998) is adapted to evaluate information. We present examples of dialogues to illustrate how students negotiated meanings as they were evaluating information, and analyzed student's decision making about the usefulness of information in order to incorporate it to their text for presenting their multimedia conference.

Keywords : Abilities appropriation; Information assessment; Primary education.
