Rethinking literacy in the information age and beyond
The responsibility for preparing students for their careers as information workers in the information age requires that educators continually rethink literacy. After considering developments such as mutliliteracies, ICT literacies and information literacy, new challenges are presented. The importance of knowledge creation and its impact on our information society are outlined. Questioning and epistomological approaches are suggested as ways of conceptualizing new literacy practices. Finally, a rethink of literacy is suggested to promote knowledge development, ready to produce knowledge workers for the impending knowledge age.
