The 21st
century is when
everything
changes.
And we have to
be ready.
-Captain
       Jack
Harkness, Torchwood
The future is here it is just not
evenly distributed – William Gibson
The Digital Divide
100 million Americans do not
have home broadband access
Who Doesn’t Have Access?
• less than 33% of the poorest Americans have
  home broadband while over 90% of the richest
  have high-speed internet access at home
• less than 50% of African Americans
• less than 50% Latinos
• less than 50% of the elderly
• less than 50% of rural populations
Broadband access for all is
essential to meeting the
information needs of
communities in a democracy.
Without it, we’ll end up with a
new category of second-class
citizens.
-Alberto Ibargüen, President, CEO Knight Foundation
Not every member must
contribute, but all must believe
they are free to contribute and
that what they contribute will be
appropriately valued.
-Henry Jenkins
Why Does it Matter?
• more than 80% of Fortune 500 companies
  require online job applications (including major
  employers such as Wal-Mart, Target, Costco,
  and ExxonMobil)
• students with a computer and broadband at
  home have 6 to 8 percentage higher GPA than
  similar student who don’t have home access to
  the Internet
• Consumers with broadband at home can save
  more than $7,000 a year.
In 64.5% of communities
the public library is the only free
  provider of public access to a
    computer and the internet
77 million Americans used a
 public library to access the
       Internet In 2009

The New Literacies
It is no longer enough simply to
read and write.
- Ernest Boyer, President, Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of
Teaching: Former U.S. Commissioner of Education
The illiterate of the 21st century
  will not be those who cannot
 read and write, but those who
   cannot learn, unlearn, and
          relearn. - Alvin Toffler
Digital Literacy is the ability to
      use information and
communication technologies to
  find, evaluate, create, and
          communicate
  information, requiring both
 cognitive and technical skills.
       -ALA Digital Literacy Taskforce (2011)
A Digitally Literate Person -
• Possesses the variety of skills – technical and cognitive –
  required to find, understand, evaluate, create, and
  communicate digital information in a wide variety of formats;
• Is able to use diverse technologies appropriately and
  effectively to retrieve information, interpret results, and judge
  the quality of that information;
• Understands the relationship between technology, life-long
  learning, personal privacy, and stewardship of information;
• Uses these skills and the appropriate technology to
  communicate and collaborate with peers, colleagues, family,
  and on occasion, the general public;
• Uses these skills to actively participate in civic society and
  contribute to a vibrant, informed, and engaged community.
   – -ALA Digital Literacy Taskforce (2011)
We are exposed to more
mediated messages in one day
than our great-grandparents
were exposed to in a year

What To Do?
Stop looking for your lost
  keys under the lamp
post just because that is
  where it is easiest to
           see.

It is not where you are
most likely to find them.
Start Learning
Assess What You Don’t Know
Get a Gadget Garage
Fail. Fail Again.

23 Things
If you don't like change, you're
 going to like irrelevance even
                less.
           -General Eric. Shinseki
Great. So How?
Accept that there is no end.

 This is the New Normal.
Managing Personal Change
• Learn as you breathe.
• Learn only what is required to accomplish the task
  before you.
• Don’t be afraid of forgetting.
• Don’t clutch old technologies when you should be
  tossing them aside.
• Don’t blindly embrace the new.
• Continually reassess your assessments.
• Look back.
• Look forward.
• Be grateful.
