The New Literacy Literacy Defined The NCTE Definition of 21st Century Literacies

Literacy has always been a collection of cultural and communicative practices shared among members of particular groups. As society and technology change, so does literacy. 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. As in the past, they are inextricably linked with particular histories, life possibilities and social trajectories of individuals and groups. Twenty-first century readers and writers need 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 Due to our evoloving new global economy
Literacy is now a blend of understanding and fluency of traditional and new communicative, collaborative, and creative technological mediums. Some of these include: reading, writing, hyper-text writing, audio, video, art, publishing, information mining,
information authentication, internet use,
participatory culture, & ethics. 3 Rs, naturally and out of necessity, evolve into 4 Es,

The best thing we can teach our students is how to teach themselves.
This requires that students become not only literate,
but also able to use that literacy within their personal information environment in order to succeed now and in the future." Armstrong & Warlick Michael Cox, a chief economist for the Federal Reserve Bank, predicted to a group of students that they would have at least five jobs after they graduate,
four of which haven't been invented yet. Technology Bloom's Taxonomy Where Do We Go From Here 1:1 Computing Cloud Computing Open Source Mobile Devices Cellular Network Professional Development Web 2.0 Paricipatory Culture "Technology must be like oxygen: ubiquitous, necessary, and invisible.
It has to be part of what you do and you have to stop talking about it.
It’s not about the drama or the tool; it’s about the project." Chris Lehmann "Digital media literacy continues its rise in importance as a key skill in every discipline and profession." 2010 Horizon Report: K12 Edition - Key Trends
