Literacy Now: Resolving the Tension between Basic Literacy and Information Literacy

"The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) provides a definition of 21st Century Literacies specific to this challenge. They write, “Because technology has increased the intensity and complexity of literate environments, the twenty-first century demands that a literate person possess a wide range of abilities and competencies, many literacies. These literacies—from reading online newspapers to participating in virtual classrooms—are multiple, dynamic, and malleable.” The NCTE website suggests that necessary contemporary skills include the ability to

- Develop proficiency with the tools of technology

- Build relationships with others to pose and solve problems collaboratively and cross-culturally

- Design and share information for global communities to meet a variety of purposes

- Manage, analyze and synthesize multiple streams of simultaneous information

- Create, critique, analyze, and evaluate multi-media texts

- Attend to the ethical responsibilities required by these complex environments"

 

Interesting reading, I warmly recommend!

Rethinking the Library to Improve Information Literacy

Rethinking the Library to Improve Information Literacy | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

"Many schools that have adopted a 1:1 program have made the mistake of forgetting the library. The library is the cornerstone of every school and is in a current state of flux. No one knows what to make of the library and some feel it is a relic in the context of schools. New information technologies emerge and the library is soon forgotten or pushed to the side, however, the library has never been more important."
