Abstract

Instead of making the post-literacy discourse more sophisticated, we approach the changing nature and complexity of information literacy from transforming social practice, elaborating the characteristics of three new “clusters” of information literacies. The main reason to define and discuss newborn literacies, transforming literacies and “hyperpeople literacies” is the emerging world of “Internet of Everything”, as a complex symbolic and transactional environment. In planning for this era we have to use “human technology”, social innovation and design thinking aspects.
