This article features a discussion about the significance of global perspectives in shaping critical literacy through a web seminar project, Global Conversations in Literacy Research (GCLR). Ubiquitous media and worldwide communication via Internet change the perceptions about literacy and language, urging critical discussions around literacy among educators with global and local connections. In this column, we demonstrate how chat discussions at GCLR web seminars initiate critical questions and thoughts among teachers, scholars and researchers from diverse background. Finally, we offer how these critical topics such as curriculum and issues of assessment inform the transformative agenda of educational policy.
