    NEW JOURNAL: Announcing the Inaugural Issue of the Journal of Information Fluency

    Editor, Martha Marinara, Ph.D. 
University of Central Florida

    Students lead lives that are technology rich and information-filled. They walk through a world that is full of textual, visual and tactile information, always have at least one ear bud in, a cell phone ready for any up-to-the-millisecond sound bite of gossip from friends and family or information from news sources—always already plugged into their technological grapevines. We often think today’s students aren’t focusing because no one can listen to music with one ear and the biology lecture with another while surfing the Web and IM’ing their friends. But literally anything they want to know is at their fingertips.

    The inception and rapid growth of the World Wide Web and its attendant digital technologies coupled with the mutable natures of public and private as we move more of our lives online, necessitates a closer analysis of how we use technology to collect and disseminate increasing amounts of information. And as more areas of our lives—both professional and familial, institutional and domestic—become more techno-centric, with blogs, e-portfolios, wikis, social networking, YouTube, flicker, and other web 2.0 technologies, we need to start to think about how our lives have changed and question if we are really learning and teaching more effectively, becoming smarter or more efficient; we need to study how our relationships have changed—are we more global and more isolated?—what professions will be needed for the next few decades and should we be educating young people today to fill those positions? Our students lead technology-mediated lives where every moment is a learning moment—probably outside of class and inside cyberspace more than inside of the classroom.

    We are faced with the same situation now in our virtual lives, in the spaces created by technology. What can these virtual walls of cyberspace teach us? This is what this journal will be about—the intersections of technology, information, culture, learning, spaces—real and imagined—and how to manage, understand, and disseminate what we know. We welcome articles from all disciplines, research areas, and industries. We welcome articles that will make us stretch the walls of cyberspace and our intellects.
