It is time we replace the term IT (Information Technology) with IL (Information Lieracy). IT is mainly about flow - the movement of information through networks of various kinds. But adding information in a time of infoglut and data smog (Shenk, 1998) can actually interfere with learning and understanding. Information abundance can overwhelm and drown the learner in irrelevant and unreliable information.
IL is mainly about developing understanding and insight. Literacy is about interpretation of information to guide decisions, solve problems and steer through uncertain complex futures.
What we need most now is a commitment to IL by schools as they strive to improve reading, writing and thinking of their students.
