11:00 - 11:30 Digitally Fluent Classrooms: Rubric

The quote below was used in a presentation by Alec Couros, Towards Digital Fluency, Jan 2012.

Technological fluency means much more than the ability to use technological tools; that would be equivalent to understanding a few common phrases in a language. To become truly fluent in a language (like English or French), you must be able to articulate a complex idea or tell an engaging story—that is, you must be able to "make things" with language. Analogously, our concept of technological fluency involves not only knowing how to use technological tools, but also knowing how to construct things of significance with those tools. Resnik & Rusk

Post-literate are those who can read but who choose to meet their primary information and recreational needs through audio, video, graphics and gaming. Print for the post-literate is relegated to brief personal messages, short informational needs, and other functional, highly pragmatic uses such as instructions, signage and time-management device entries - each often highly supplemented by graphics. The post-literate's need for extended works or larger amounts of information is met through visual and/or auditory formats. Libraries for a Post-literate Society
