Reading, Writing, and Non-Thinking "Work" on Social Media | HASTAC

Reading, Writing, and Non-Thinking "Work" on Social Media | HASTAC | Teaching & Learning in the Digital Age | Scoop.it

In an essay titled "Writing Over Reading: New Directions in Mass Literacy" Deborah Brandt describes the tension between reading and writing. Historically, Brandt writes, reading was seen as more valuable, and also filled with more "reverence" than writing. Writing was seen as "self-sponsored" action that might be done in the wake of a dramatic period-- divorce, falling in love, losing someone, or the need to write one's memoir. Yet, now we are at a great moment when people are reading for the purpose of writing: "from the position of the writer, with hands on the screen."

Clive Thompson on the New Literacy | Teaching & Learning in the Digital Age | Scoop.it

From the piece:

"I think we're in the midst of a literacy revolution the likes of which we haven't seen since Greek civilization," she says. For Lunsford, technology isn't killing our ability to write. It's reviving it—and pushing our literacy in bold new directions."

Digital Ethnography » Subjects or Subjectivites?

"As an alternative to the idea that we teach 'subjects,' I’ve been playing with the idea that what we really teach are 'subjectivities': ways of approaching, understanding, and interacting with the world. Subjectivities cannot be 'taught' – only practiced." ~Michael Wesch

Cope & Kalantzis: Literacies (from their site, Newlearningonline.com)

‘Literacies’ presents a contemporary approach to literacy learning and teaching, developing and extending ‘Multiliteracies’ theory and practice. This site presents supporting material for the book by Mary Kalantzis & Bill Cope, published by Cambridge University Press in 2011. The website supplements traditional ideas of literacy in the singular—learning to read and write—by expanding the area of focus to cover ‘literacies’ in the plural.
