Abstract

This chapter reviews recent research related to students' educational device use, online content consumption, and students' understanding of content providers' algorithmic targeting practices to make the case for a new information literacy content area that encompasses a comprehensive and responsive education initiative focused on maintaining students' autonomy and wellbeing. By examining the great extent to which online content providers' large-scale switch to algorithmic, responsive, individualized content provision proliferates, this chapter makes the case that students' (and teachers') lack of engagement in this regard makes for a crisis of sustainability. The chapter situates the need for systemic adaptation to this new reality as overdue and urgent.
