Real information literacy insights

Real-life insights –

First, watching videos on Google Video, my ten year old looked at the length and said, “Oh, 30 seconds, it must be funny.”  He’s got a familiarity with the genre that I don’t, that’s for sure.

And, thinking about what a ‘curriculum’ for information literacy might look like, in the vein of the paper, “As we may think” by Johnston and Webber, mentioned on the Information Literacy blog, I’ve thought that programming would be very important: that being able to program would be like knowing how to read….  But I think programming in the future will be what we call ‘configuring’ now.  It won’t look like code, the code will be hidden behind drop-downs and radio buttons.  Consider that web ‘programming’ in html used to involve text editors like notepad.  Now it would be crazy to start there, when a blog or wiki engine, or editors like FrontPage, not to mention enterprise systems like SharePoint, get you so much further at the start.
