The goal of this study is to observe the effect of instruction deliverance method in the construction of mental model. A good mental model can help the userís learnability process. There were two methods tested in this study: a step-by-step instruction (SS) and a complete set of whole-steps instructions (WS) to finish a given task. The SS group performed better on the learning process, however they had the least score on both the information retention and transfer process. Their minds were not engaged in the process, as they seemed to simply follow the instructions without being critical. When error occurred, they tended to be less persistent in trying to finish the task. This might be caused by the incomplete mental model as a result of receiving the instruction step by step.

Mendapatkan informasi dalam berbagai format dan dari berbagai sumber, baik cetak maupun elektronik, memerlukan kemampuan khusus yang disebut digital literacy, atau melek digital. Kemampuan ini seharusnya menjadi kemampuan dasar bagi mahasiswa dalam menjalani proses belajar.

Mengerti Digital Literacy
Tulian ini diilhami oleh sebuah buku tentang Digital Literacy dengan latar belakang dunia barat. Saya mengerti kata " digital" dan saya mengerti juga arti kata " literacy", tapi gabungan dari keudanya: Digital Literacy, merupakan kata lain yang belum saya pahami maksudnya. Dari buku tersebut diberikan suatu definsi dari Digital Literacy, yaitu: Digital literasi is the ability to understand and use information in multiple formats from a wide range of sources when it is presented via computers[1]. Dalam terjemahan bebas artinya: kemampuan untuk memhami dan menggunakan informasi dalam berbagi bentuk format dan dari berbeda sumber ketika informasi tersebut disajikan melalui komputer.

Penerbit: UKDW dan Pohon Cahaya

Information literacy merupakan istilah yang padanan katanya dalam Bahasa Indonesia belum disepakati. Ada yang memadankan dengan kemelekan informasi, keberinformasian, melek informasi atau literasi informasi. Pada umumnya istilah yaug terakhirlah yang digunakan karena mendekati istilah aslinya sekalipun kata literasi jalang sekali digunakan atau mungkin tidak pemah. Dalam tulisaa ini, istilah information literacy digunakan untuk menjaga arti dan menghindari perbedaan karena belum sepakat tadi. Secara singkat, infonnation literacy adalah kemampuan menemukan dan memanfaatkan informasi secara efektif, efisien dan etis. Terasa sederhana penjelasannya, tapi sering kali pada kenyataannya tidak sederhana. Waktu ada
kebutuhan informasi, infonnasi yang dibutuhkan tidak selalu dapat tersedia atau didapatkan dengan mudah. Pada saat didapatkan maka penggunaannya pun perlu diperhatikan. Etika menjadi salah satu syarat yang melekat ketika informasi digunakan. Salah menggunakan informasi dapat berakibat buruk pada banyak tingkatan. Sebagai contoh, dalam dunia akademik, pada umumnya sumber infonnasi digunakan untuk menghasilkan produk informasi lain. Karya ilmiah didasarkan pada teori-teori dari berbagai sumber. Teori-teori itu digunakan dan jadi dasar dalam karya ilmiah. Wajib bagi penyusun karya ilmiah tersebut untuk mengakui dan menyebutkan dengan cara yang benar sumber dan penulis teori-teori tersebut. Di sini letak sifat etis. Bagi yang tidak melakukan, maka dianggap plagiat, dan hal itu memiliki risiko. Demikian secara sederhana tentang information literacy.
