Gennia Holder's curator insight, January 14, 9:50 AM

This a great list, but, perfect?  I don't know about that :)  Stories aren't a magic bullet. However, applying these elements and telling the right story+right time+right audience... can make an emotional connection with your audience that impacts your business.

21st Century Critical Literacy

Is traditional reading and writing enough to be considered literate in the 21st century? We need to rethink our notion of critical literacy, develop authentic learning and assessment opportunities, upgrade and amplify our curriculum.

Anne Whaits's curator insight, December 16, 2012 1:33 AM

What a great presentation and a powerful message! The affordances of technology in the digital age define a new culture of learning in which reading & writing can be collaborative (e.g. through use of wikis), reflective (e.g. through use of blogs) and a social process (e.g. through use of Twitter). Silva presents a strong case for a new set of critical literacies - love it!

Tracy Shaw's curator insight, February 7, 2013 6:10 PM
