Two of the common beliefs behind AASL's Standards for the 21st-Century Learner state today's students need to develop skills that enable them to use technology as an important tool for current and future learning and that multiple literacies, including technological, have joined information literacy as crucial skills for this century.

Think: Using technology to access information and pursue inquiry. For example, the school network, the internet wireless networks.
Create: Using technology to create products that express new understandings. For example, using video cameras to create an educational documentary.
Share: Using technology to organize and display knowledge that others can use; participate and collaborate with others. For example, web conferencing and video conferencing.
Grow: Using technology to seek information for personal learning; joining social networks to gather and share information. For example, finding free music lessons, or other courses online.
