21st Century Literacy

Information Literacy?

Dave Warlick has blogged about his latest podcast in which he cites this definition of 21st century literacy:

Literacy in the 21st century includes all skills involved in learning to learn, learning to build with what you’ve learned, and to express compelling what you have built, utilizing all modalities of sense and expression, within today’s rich information landscape.

So, that’s just a posh way of saying that learners need to be more reflective and communicate their thoughts in ways that aren’t exclusively tied to writing with pen-and-paper, yes? 😉
