    1. The student should become as little conscious of his notebookas possible , that his mind may act reflexively ; that is, from habit, automatically.

      One should strive to become fluent with their note taking materials and tools to the point that both having them at hand and using them them are as second nature as breathing, walking, or speaking.

      When it comes to productivity gains, this one thing can be the most helpful. Have a process; know it intimately enough that it is second nature.

    1. People who are fluent in sign language, as Cooke is, have beenfound to have an enhanced ability to process visual and spatial information. Suchsuperior performance is exhibited by hearing people who know sign language, aswell as by the hearing impaired—suggesting that it is the repeated use of astructured system of meaning-bearing gestures that helps improve spatialthinking.

      Evidence indicates that those who are have experience or fluency in sign language (both hearing and non-hearing) have increased visual-spatial intelligence and reasoning. Practice using gesturing directly improves spatial thinking.

    1. Instead of viewing a 'digital' version of literacy as a pinnacle to be achieved or surmounted, the focus would be upon Flow. When dealing with digital 'texts' (widely defined) this would result in Digital Flow depending upon literacy. Literacy becomes a staging-post on the journey instead of the destination itself

      This is how I think of digital fluency - this flow-like state where you can maneuver from tool to tool without consciously having to focus on the tool.

    1. Broadly speaking, digital fluency is a combination of these three concepts:digital, or technical, proficiency: able to understand, make judgements about, select and use appropriate technologies and technological systems for different purposes; this might include knowing how to use technologies to protect one’s data, digital identity, and device security.   digital literacy: in digital spaces, being able to read, create, critique and make judgements about the accuracy and worth of information being accessed; being fluent in critical thinking and problem-solving online; Use digital tools to collaborate and construct information across all relevant and significant contexts social competence, or dispositional knowledge: the ability to be able to relate to others and communicate with them effectively; able to manage one’s identity, information, relationships in ways that are appropriate, responsible, safe and sustainable.

      Digital fluency definition.

    1. FITness goes beyond traditional notions of computer literacy to require that persons understand information technology broadly enough to apply it productively at work and in their everyday lives, to recognize when information technology can assist or impede the achievement of a goal, and to continually adapt to changes in information technology. FITness, therefore, requires a deeper, more essential understanding and mastery of information technology for information processing, communication, and problem solving than does the traditional definition of computer literacy. Acquiring TK in this manner enables a person to accomplish a variety of different tasks using information technology and to develop different ways of accomplishing a given task. This conceptualization of TK does not posit an “end state,” but rather sees it developmentally, as evolving over a lifetime of generative, open-ended interaction with technology.

      Fluency of Technology Literacy is fluid and must evolve over a person's lifetime, remaining flexible as technology changes. I would guess many of us stop growing in our FITness in our mid-20's as most people tend to stick with the tech tools and ways of doing things that they grew up with.

    1. A good educational system should have three purposes: it should provide all who want to learn with access to available resources at any time in their lives; empower all who want to share what they know to find those who want to learn it from them; and, finally, furnish all who want to present an issue to the public with the opportunity to make their challenge known.

      I think this sums up the goals of Teach Like Mozilla and the #mozacademy

    1. “fluency”

      I think I am a little adverse to the term. Fluency (same reason I don't like literacy) is dichotomous. You are fluent or you are not. For me its more of an Open Mentor Continuum or "The Teach Like a Mozillian Continuum"

    2. ’d love to hear thoughts on this approach to placing a lens on the Web Literacy Map. Please ask questions, push back, give feedback to this thinking-in-progress.

      I think you have gotten far in the unique characteristics of effective blended teaching. Specifically the online stuff.

      There are other fundamental elements there could be missing. I also wonder if the grid approach if most beneficial. There maybe better heuristics to represent what it means to be a webmaker mentor or leader.
