Abstract

The new demands by the present century have made international institutions like UNESCO place emphasis on the impact of lifelong learning. Immanent in lifelong learning, the socalled information literacy has been considered as the basis for the development of this competence. In this article we present our experience in the creation and use of Personal Learning Environments to develop this competence in students of the first semester of Industrial Engineering the structure of the activity and its relationship with the five information literacy standards proposed by the "Association College Research Libraries"are presented the initial results show us the probable effectiveness of the proposal implemented in an initial stage the students who were part of the study showed a percentage greater than 65% in the five standards in terms of their perception. We believe that the experience presented can be adapted to different contexts and disciplines.
