Redefining Literacy

| 1 Comment

Ed Tech expert Scott McLeod offers 10 random questions that schools should be considering in connection with books and libraries. A sample:

If students and teachers now can be active content creators and producers, not just passive information recipients, doesn't that redefine our entire notion of what it means to be information literate and media fluent? Are our librarians and classroom teachers doing enough to help students master these new literacies (for example, by focusing on student content creation, not just information consumption and/or interpretation)?

Thanks for your question. However, if the content itself is to be mediated by the librarians and classroom teachers wouldn't that be missing the whole point of students offering their own opinions. They are not authors or literary masters or even authorities on which they speak. They are students in the process of learning and developing ideas; wrong or right.
