What is new media literacy?

A recent post from Lorne Oke on the NMC listserv (02July09) suggested that “the New Epistemology requires…the ability to find/collaborate/sift/sort/discern information rather than read/listen/memorize/mimic instruction. This is a very different skill set than what we are currently ‘teaching’ and assessing.  The real challenge will be to create systemic change that fosters a fundamental shift on the part of our teachers/faculty to adapt to this new paradigm.  Once our learning communities accept these realities, can we assist each other in embracing them?”
