  • 2. What does it mean to be literate  in the 21st century? h:p://www.flickr.com/photos/michaelheiss/2871996129/  
  • 3. UNESCO Definition of  Media Information Literacies (MIL) Knowledge, attitudes, skills, & practices required to access, analyse, evaluate, use, produce, & communicate  information & knowledge in creative, legal, & ethical ways Extend beyond information & communication technologies to encompass  learning, critical thinking & interpretive skills
  • 4. Backdrop: Changing Culture public, institutional values closed systems knowledge scarcity open systems market values knowledge abundance
  • 5. INTRODUCTION •  Information abundance = context of MIL •  Networks = structure of MIL •  New Ethos = key to understanding MIL  LEARNING IN THE NEW ETHOS •  Identities = pathways to MIL •  Learning as participation
  • 6. Literacy, 400 BCE = Threat to Knowledge
  • 7. Literacy, 1500 CE = Control of Knowledge  
  • 8. Literacies, 2014 BCE = Management & Synthesis of Knowledge  
  • 9. Information Abundance h:p://www.flickr.com/photos/silaHx/9886617776/sizes/c  
  • 10. Channels of Abundance = Networks
  • 11. Oh good. So technology is the answer to everything?
  • 12. NO.
  • 13. Networks are not about online/offline binaries h:p://www.flickr.com/photos/zigazou76/5824384001/sizes/z/  
  • 14. Technologies do not necessarily change the ways we approach learning h:p://www.onlineuniversiHes.com/blog/2012/08/teaching-­‐with-­‐tablets/  
  • 15. New tech + old approaches    new literacies
  • 16. Participatory culture = new ethos “Paradigm cases of new literacies have both new “technical stuff” (digitality) and new “ethos stuff”…what is central to new literacies is not the fact that we can now “look up information online” or write essays using a word processor rather than a pen… but rather, that they mobilize very different kinds of values and priorities and sensibilities.” - Knobel & Lankshear (2007)
  • 17. It’s not tech but what we DO with it –  and each other – that makes us literate h:p://www.flickr.com/photos/rofi/2647699204/    
  • 18. Being ‘of’ the web = literacies of networks Institutions Networks product-focused mastery bounded by time/space hierarchical ties plagiarism authority in role audience = teacher process-focused participation always accessible peer-to-peer ties crowdsourcing authority in reputation audience = world
  • 19. So.  How do we learn  Media & Information Literacies in this  new ethos?  Hang tight.  Part II is on its way. J
