Abstract

Statements about ‘the Google Generation’ and ‘Digital Natives’ are creating unhelpful generalizations that block the capacity to intervene in superficial information literacy practices. The goal in this paper is to move beyond the clichés of Web 2.0, offering productive and positive trajectories to move librarians, teachers, students and citizens from the information to the conceptual age. The paper has a particular focus on the consequences for education and economic development of investing simplistic phrases with explanatory power.
