If we accept that learning is a predominant part of today and tomorrow's work and lifestyle, then perhaps we should rethink literacy and start to explicitly talk about literacy for learning, or learning literacy. If learning becomes the clear aim of literacy, and not focused so exclusively on literacy skills to be taught and checked off, then literacy habits, practiced every day in every lesson, will become the outcome of our classroom experiences, and we and our students will come to embrace a learning lifestyle.
