Sam makes an important point about how literacy changes:

I still think that literacy has an ever changing definition, its about being literate in the moment, trying to keep up with technology (at least the stuff you can use).

I agree with him and hope that we keep in mind that there is more to this than just the technology itself (that kids seem to outpace us on). Also, and I believe more important, are the habits of mind that we, as teachers, can help students develop as they learn to read, write, and live in online spaces. That, I believe, is our task. Staying current with technology is surely part of that, but the kids can teach us how to do things so long as we are teaching them why the could, should, or would do them.
