  • The University of Central Florida defined information fluency as “the ability to perform effectively in an information-rich and technology-intensive environment.” Simply put, information fluency is the ability to gather, evaluate, and use information in ethical and legal ways. Information fluency encompasses and integrates three important skills: information literacy, technology literacy, and critical thinking. These three skills are not mutually exclusive but overlap in many areas.  Using these skills means having the ability to communicate information in appropriate and effective ways, which is an important measure of information fluency.
