Rheingold on 21st century literacies

Here’s a July 2009 talk at the Reboot Britain event by the grandfather of virtual communities.  He says that we have to get beyond individual skills to  acquire 21st century literacies, and that these skills plus community are what is driving social media.  This talk focuses on: attention, participation, cooperation; critical consumption (crap detection) and network awareness.  And about the future of education.

It’s compelling to watch.
