We Are All Teachers Of Literacy | Literacy in the algorithmic medium | Scoop.it

Literacy today is taking on a whole new meaning and many years from now it will mean something entirely different. Therefore, we have to look at literacy through a new lens and expand on our definition of what makes kids and all of us literate and examine how technology supports our ability to do so.
