Social Media literacies as Social Skills…

071029172856-largeNew social media literacies is best to be considered as social skills rather than autonomous user technical knowledge about how to use modern web 2.0 tools. However it is still midnight at Palermo… Schools in Greece are still trying to educate students in modern ICT technology, ignoring that the essential point is cultivating social skills to navigate in the virtual sphere. So school’s lessons are  becoming more and more irrelevant to the modern reality and consequently more and more boring.

Today the question is whether school will manage to educate the collective, social and inquiring inteligence. Should we be optimistic?
