Infographic: 36% of all shared links on Twitter are photos | Technology and Media in the 21st Century Schools | Scoop.it

This infographic makes the interesting point that more than one-third of shared links on Twitter are photos.

This makes a lot of sense considering successful content on Facebook, Pinterest and Google Plus, but it’s an important reminder that Twitter is more than 140 character posts anymore...

Information Fluency Model

Information Fluency Model | Technology and Media in the 21st Century Schools | Scoop.it

Digital Information Fluency (DIF) is the ability to find, evaluate and use digital information effectively, efficiently and ethically. DIF involves knowing how digital information is different from print information; having the skills to use specialized tools for finding digital information; and developing the dispositions needed in the digital information environment. As teachers and librarians develop these skills and teach them to students, students will become better equipped to achieve their information needs.

"As part of its report on “Educating the Workforce of Tomorrow,” The Atlantic recently featured a look at the 'Catch-22 of digital literacy'—a conundrum that’s holding back millions of people from gaining computer skills and digital fluency. According to the Federal Communications Commission, 66 million Americans lack the basic skills to use computers and the internet. Referring to this group as 'digital outsiders,' Amy Southerland addresses the difficulty in encouraging more of them to acquire basic skills..."

Digital Literacy is Good, but Fluency is Better | The Atlantic | Technology and Media in the 21st Century Schools | Scoop.it

In their new book, Digital Fluency: Building Success in the Digital Age, Christian Briggs and Kevin Makice offer a roadmap to digital fluency for individuals and organizations.

So what's the difference between digital literacy and digital fluency? According to Briggs and Makice, literacy means you know what tools to use and how to use them, while fluency means you also know when and why to use them. They also offer this core definition: "Digital fluency is the ability to reliably achieve desired outcomes through use of digital technology." Under this definition, fluency also includes the ability to choose the right tools and use multiple tools in combination.

The distinction between literacy and fluency is a very useful framework for thinking about how to survive and thrive in the digital age, and the concept of digital fluency has also been explored by Mitchel Resnick, professor of learning research at the MIT Media Lab. In a 2002 report, Resnick offered the analogy to learning a foreign language:
