I believe that some aspects of digital literacy is leaving out the element of discovering books outside comfort zones which seems to be shrinking for teens these days. Can teens start the process of finding print materials without dependence on a device? I appreciate how electronic devices expand our awareness of titles but I wonder if they sometimes limit the inquiry process.
This conversation reminds me of the article Digital Literacy Will Never Replace The Traditional Kind linked here.
With digital literacy are we fully owning our interests and realizing our curiosities?
Multiple literacies teach students to embrace knowledge in various formats. I think that an Internet savvy person means using digital tools AND being able to articulate interests, curiosities, passions, and make connections between ideas and topics. And despite technology rewiring of our minds are we able to find, escape, and enjoy a good book on the shelves anymore?
