Take time to read Jeff Utecht’s thoughtful post from ISTE 2010 about networked literacy. Jeff’s working definition of networked literacy:
Networked literacy is what the web is about. It’s about understanding how people and communication networks work. It’s the understanding of how to find information and how to be found. It’s about how to read hyperlinked text articles, and understand the connections that are made when you become “friends” or “follow” someone on a network. It’s the understanding of how to stay safe and how to use the networked knowledge that is the World Wide Web. Networked Literacy is about understanding connections.
You can read the rest of Jeff’s thoughts on networked literacy by visiting his post; stay tuned for additional posts that will be forthcoming in the next few days from #iste10.
