How does reading and learning change on the Internet? You are invited into a conversation about the nature of information on the Internet and its implications for how we think about reading comprehension and critical thinking in a digital information age. Julie first explores how the Internet poses new opportunities for authentic inquiry, collaborative conversations, and students to develop their voices as active citizens. Then, she describes the reading challenges that extend beyond traditional reading comprehension skills to encompass rapidly changing literacies for questioning, locating, evaluating, synthesizing, and communicating information during online inquiry. Finally, she highlights important areas for future research in order to keep up with the changing technologies that will continue to redefine what literacy means in the future.
