What do you think it means to be literate in the 21 century?

As a teacher librarian I have seen literacy change over the years,  as the information explosion has taken place.  Our roles as teachers have changed for the better because we have so many amazing sources for gaining literacy, all of which have an important role to play.  Reading and writing from a digital and critical thinking perspective,  need to be balanced with  outdoor and social literacy,  and of course spiritual literacy is the food for our soul. 

Check out this video on the different types of literacy.  Have you made sure your teens are acquiring all forms of literacy or are you content to let the education system prescribe to you?  How do your teens find balance when so much of their literacy is technological or digitally based?  How are our teens being impacted?  Positive or negative scenarios?  Do you think certain literacy's are more important than others?  I would love to hear your thoughts?
Blessings to you
