Abstract:Nowadays, internet plays a major role in the daily life and education of children (Tamilchelvi & Senthilnathan, 2013). There is an exponentially fast increase of digital information (van der Kaap & Schmidt, 2007) while the reliability of this information is decreasing (SLO, 2015; Thijs, Fisser, & Hoeven, 2014). Therefore, the primary school curriculum should include 21st century skills. More specifically the skill information literacy is needed. This skill includes the ability to find, select, and use relevant and reliable information from reliable sources (SLO, 2015). Since teachers feel uncertain about teaching 21st century skills (Thijs et al., 2014) and the lack of time in primary education, learner-directed learning materials are needed. Based on theoretical and practical analysis, learning materials including instructional videos based on the vlog-principle and an instruction booklet were developed and implemented in group 6. This design-based action research with control group was conducted to study the effects of these instructional videos in learning and on the level of self-efficacy. Some results showed differences between the scores before and after implementation of the learning materials, especially in learning, but there were no significant differences on the level of self-efficacy.
