Trends and changes in education are a common part of this field of study and routinely affect the practitioners to the point of confusion. What may be an applicable and advantageous strategy today is often deemed inappropriate at some later date. The strap was once a highly touted form of discipline that has since been viewed as unacceptable and counter productive. So it seems to be with the myriad of educational strategies constantly heralded as the latest saviours of our educational system. More attention needs to be paid to determining the relationship between past and present strategies so that the transition from one to the other, if necessary, is as smooth and acceptable as possible. Practitioners are hardly finished with developing an understanding for one methodology when another, similar strategy is often heaped upon them. It is, in my opinion, important that all are aware of the similarities between the old and the new to help dispel the concerns and frustrations that practitioners have when it comes to implementation. -- This project serves to ease the transition between the traditional Resource-Based Learning strategies and the more recent emphasis on Information Literacy. It provides an examination of both theories and their accompanying strategies along with relevant examples for the Newfoundland and Labrador School Curriculum. It also provides the reader with ways to overcome some of the more commonly indicated barriers to the implementation of such strategies.
