Mark’s recent augmentation to his thinking on multiliteracies

his wiki:


LANGUAGE-BASED LITERACIES  print literacy, texting literacy, hypertext literacy, multiliteracies (including visual literacy, audio literacy & video literacy) and technological literacy (including code literacy);

INFORMATION-BASED LITERACIES search literacy, tagging literacy, information literacy (aka critical literacy) and filtering literacy (including attention literacy);

CONNECTION-BASED LITERACIES personal literacy, network literacy (including digital safety), participatory literacy and cultural/intercultural literacy;

REMIX LITERACY - a metaliteracy which encompasses most of the above literacies and is, arguably, the hallmark literacy of contemporary culture.

Photos from my invited IATEFL LT SIG PCE talk and Q & A session, held at Avalon Learning in Second Life, 7 April 2010. It was very much a multimodal event, with frequent crossovers between the 'real life' gathering in Harrogate, UK, and the virtual gathering in Second Life. After watching a video and viewing slides, participants used audio and text chat channels for discussion.

.. was this idea of continuous partial attention, coupled with the filtering literacies

Does anyone have any questions you’d like to ask Gavin and Mark?

If so, please write them below, or annotate the document above :-)

My (Vance) questions are: apart from the reference to CPA disorder noted above

I note that multiliteracies is one of the language literacies, but I would turn the bag inside out and make m/lit lit the umbrella and everything else under that.  Your thots?

Remix and fair use?

HOW do you move teachers from CALL and TELL etc? so that it’s the way forward?

Mark’s twitter feed just before he came on

that's a great point, use the pedagogical hooks to get people interested in the topics, and THEN the tools to do that
