Following my recent rants on skills ((Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4), comes this pertinent video of Howard Rheingold at Reboot Britain. (Hat tip Will Richardson http://twitter.com/willrich45) Howard asks us to go beyond skills – which are embedded in the individual – to literacies which are embedded in communities and networks, particularly digital literacies tied to social media. The five he talks about in this video include:
- Critical Consumption (Crap Detection)
- Network Awareness
“The fluency is not the particular literacy, but being able to put these literacies together.” Howard Rheingold.
Take a watch.
