We live in a world increasingly mediated by information and communication technologies that impact every aspect of our lives and have changed and will continue to change our literacy practices. As educators we need to understand the changes so that we can learn how to use the new technologies ‘efficiently, ethically and responsibly with a view to tapping their educational potential’ (Synder, 2001).
Researchers such as Luke (1997), Gagel (1997), Leu (2004), Bruce (1997) and others indicate that one of the critical literacies of our times is the Technological Literacy witch is about the ability to understand and effectively use emerging and converging technologies.
How would you define technological literacy? What do you think it entails?
