Information Fluency

15 Mar

The good, cold folks up at the University of Alaska – Fairbanks’ eLearning and Distance Education group have done quite a bit of good work on what it means to be fluent in the digital world. They have eschewed the idea of “media literacy” that I grew up with, and evImageen updated the notion of digital fluency.

Instead, they propose “Information Fluency,” and make a pretty compelling case for how that term more accurately portrays how we learn today.

Check out their one-pager here (keeping it short and concise must have been a challenge on itself!).
