    Literacy is NOT Enough: 21st Century Fluencies for the Digital Age

    It is no longer enough that we educate only to the standards of the traditional literacies. If students are to survive, let alone thrive, in the 21st-century culture of technology-driven automation, abundance and access to global labour markets, then independent thinking and its corollary, creative thinking, hold the highest currency. To be competent and capable in the 21st century requires a completely different set of skills. These 21st-century fluencies (Solution Fluency, Information Fluency, Creativity Fluency, Media Fluency, Collaboration Fluency and Global Digital Citizenship) are identified and explained in detail in this book as processes that can be learned and applied by students.
