21st Century Critical Literacy: Is Traditional Reading & Writing Enough?

Is traditional reading and writing enough to be considered literate in the 21st century?

Check out this slideshow from Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano which asks us to "rethink our notion of critical literacy." She also suggests that we "develop authentic learning and assessment opportunities {as we} upgrade and amplify our curriculum."

Like many other adults, adult learners are trying to figure out how to make good choices when buying a computer. A group of educators from Boston area decided to address this need by developing a web-based virtual visit to a computer store that can be used for self-study or as part of a class with adult learners. Their web site “How to buy a computer” is one of several web-based projects completed by adult educators who participated in professional development on using the Web to augment instruction and supporting learners who might benefit from self-study. Practitioners from Massachusetts and Rhode Island focused on developing and supporting online learning options while Connecticut and Vermont practitioners learned how to build Web sites with students as a project-based activity.
