Jan Watts's curator insight, November 11, 2013 6:55 PM

Why We Should Be Teaching Visual Literacy in High School

Why We Should Be Teaching Visual Literacy in High School | Practice page for me | Scoop.it
How is it possible that, save those who are blind, students can know less about the visual world around them than they do about how to type a paper? The truth is, most Americans simply aren’t taught visual literacy skills.

How Digital Learning Is Becoming The Fourth Literacy | Practice page for me | Scoop.it

But since it is 2013 and so much of our lives happen online, digital literacy is being added to the list. Not that this should come as any sort of surprise to most of us, since most teachers spend vast amounts of time in classrooms surrounded by technology. Technology that both teachers and students need to be literate in.
