  8. 8. “Web 2.0 tools exist that might allow academics to reflect and reimagine what they do as scholars. Such tools might positively affect -- even transform - research, teaching, and service responsibilities - only if scholars choose to build serious academic lives online, presenting semi- public selves and becoming invested in and connected to the work of their peers and students.” (Greenhow, Robelia, & Hughes, 2009)

  19. 19. “Open Education is the simple and powerful idea that the world’s knowledge is a public good and that technology in general and the Worldwide Web in particular provide an extraordinary opportunity for everyone to share, use, and reuse knowledge.” (William & Flora Hewlett Foundation)

  32. 32. myth of the digital native
  33. 33. Children and young people are described as ‘the collaboration generation’, eager to work together towards common goals, share content and draw upon “the power of mass collaboration”. This combination of individualisation and collaboration is often presented as giving young people a propensity to question, challenge and critique. These are individuals who “typically can’t imagine a life where citizens didn’t have the tools to constantly think critically, exchange views, challenge, authenticate, verify, or debunk. The Digital Native - Myth & Reality, Selwyn (2009)
  34. 34. Are We To Believe This?
  35. 35. Or This?
  36. 36. Or This?
  37. 37. “... age is not a determining factor in students’ digital lives; rather, their familiarity and experience using ICTs is more relevant.” “... the notion of ‘digital natives’ is inaccurate: those with such attributes are effectively a digital elite. Instead of a new net generation growing up to replace an older analogue generation, there is a deepening digital divide ... characterized not by age but by access and opportunity.”
  38. 38. Postliterate are “those who can read who choose to meet their primary information and recreational needs through audio, video, graphics, and gaming. Print for the postliterate is relegated to brief personal messages, short information needs, and other functional, highly pragmatic uses such as instructions, signage, and time- management device entries - each often highly supplemented by graphics. The postliterate’s need for extended works or larger amounts of information is met through visual and/or auditory formats. Libraries for a Postliterate Society, Johnson (2009)

  71. 71. Framework for Student Learning, Government of Alberta (2011)
  72. 72. “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), one must be able to articulate a complex idea or tell an engaging story -- that is, to be able to make things of significance with these tools. ” The Computer Clubhouse: Technology Fluency in the Inner City, Resnick, Rusk, & Cooke (1998)
