Vortex(t) is an information literacy blog written by students at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Virginia.

At its core, information literacy (IL) is about learning how to learn.  Librarians/Teachers use the concept of IL to discuss the abilities and mindsets students need as they interact with information.  One can even assign it lofty goals, like helping students develop as democratically engaged citizens and lifelong learners.

Vortex(t) is part of the Digital Writing and Information Literacy Initiative at CNU.
