The Difference Between Digital Literacy and Digital Fluency | SociaLens Blog

The Difference Between Digital Literacy and Digital Fluency | SociaLens Blog | Keep learning | Scoop.it

Thanks to Eric Stockmeyer for this one: "Literacy and fluency* have to do with our ability to use a technology to achieve a desired outcome in a situation using the technologies that are available to us. A literate person is perfectly capable of using digital tools. They know how to use them and what to do with them, but the outcome is less likely to match their intention. It is not until that person reaches a level of fluency, however, that they are comfortable with when to use the tools to achieve the desired outcome, and even why the tools they are using are likely to have the desired outcome at all."

Why Language Does Not Govern the Thinking of Children

"As adults, we know that words are very predictive. If you use words to guide you, they won't often let you down," said Sloutsky. "But for children, words are just another feature among many to consider when they're trying to classify an object. Adults believe words do have a unique power to classify things, but young children don't think the same way."
