I've been at the WCET conference this week learning about online learning. Turns out, a lot of the sessions have been about Web 2.0 tools. Teachers across the country are finding hundreds of new tools that make it easier to communicate with students and to facilitate collaboration in their classrooms. This has raised many questions about what it means to be literate in today's 21st century environment and what is means to be information fluent. According to Chris Lott and Carol Gering of University of Alaska, Fairbanks, information fluency is the intersection of domain knowledge, critical thinking, and presentation and participation skills. See their information fluency diagram here.
