The 7 Important Literacies of The 21st Century Education ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The 7 Important Literacies of The 21st Century Education ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21 century education | Scoop.it

Literacy is a deceptively broad topic  that can be approached from various lenses. Schoolars from Plato to James Paul Gee have extensively written on the topic, each arguing for the validity of the theoretical lens through which they see it. Going through these theories I find myself inclining more to the progressivist camp or the " New Literacies" camp. Obviously,we are not in front of a single literacy but rather multiple literacies. The momentum of this  multiplicity of literacies has tremendously increased with the introduction of technology.

Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

Amen to all these literacies in 21st century education.  Add biblical literacy and you have a well rounded scholar :)

21st Century Literacies: Tools for Reading the World

In Intelligence Reframed Howard Gardner contends that "literacies, skills, and disciplines ought to be pursued as tools that allow us to enhance our understanding of important questions, topics, and themes." Today's readers become literate by learning to read the words and symbols in today's world and its antecedents. They analyze, compare, evaluate and interpret multiple representations from a variety of disciplines and subjects, including texts, photographs, artwork, and data. They learn to choose and modify their own communication based on the rhetorical situation. Point of view is created by the reader, the audience and the medium.  

This article with links to the various types of literacies is a MUST read for all teachers and librarians for 21 century learning and online reading!  *****

Encyclopedia of Language and Literacy Development

Encyclopedia of Language and Literacy Development | 21 century education | Scoop.it
Language and Literacy Encylopedia Site
Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

"The Encyclopedia is the first comprehensive, evidence-based online resource focused on children's language and literacy development for the Canadian education sector.

The Encyclopedia helps provide answers to questions about children's language and literacy – answers that are based on relevant, reliable and up-to-date research presented in an easily accessible format. A wide range of topics, including the development of oral language, reading, writing and numeracy, are addressed. In addition to articles written by some of the world's leading experts on language and literacy, the Encyclopedia includes key messages for educators, parents and policymakers, as well as commentaries written by front-line practitioners. Many teachers have reported that they use the Encyclopedia to support their daily practices, telling us how informative and user-friendly they find the entries for developing, implementing and supporting literacy programs for their students.

The goal of the Encyclopedia is to bring the best international research on language and literacy development to Canada. Thus, in addition to the many expert Canadian researchers contributing to the Encyclopedia, an increasing number of researchers from other countries are becoming involved in this project, including researchers from the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Finland, New Zealand, Germany, Israel, China, Jordan, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.

As more research is conducted and our understanding of language and literacy expands and changes, the Encyclopedia will grow in parallel. Please visit often, as new entries and commentaries are added regularly.

If you could share this information with teachers, it would be much appreciated. Let us know if you have any questions about the Encyclopedia at jeren@cllrnet.ca."
