Abstract

This presentation incorporates questions of “information literacy,” a popular designation for a form of technology use, into a broader inquiry into how teachers and teacher educators gain and understand the “online abilities” necessary for successful distance learning and other activities in education. A group of “online abilities” is identified, including hypermedia reading, searching and evaluating online information, historical understanding of the new information technologies, and more. These abilities amount to a “second subject” in online courses and programs, or a way of recognizing that the new information and communications technologies themselves deserve attention for their history, uses, and meanings, and their roles in social and educational transformation.
