From Designing to Organizing New Social Futures: Multiliteracies Pedagogies for Today
Penuel, William R.; O'Connor, Kevin
Theory Into Practice, v57 n1 p64-71 2018
More than 20 years ago, literacy pedagogies informed by the emerging networked world defined by local diversity and global connectedness, new digital media and fast capitalism. Modern people now fully inhabit the world they described, but the contours of that world's racial dynamics and growing inequality call for a refinement of pedagogies that embrace a more activist metaphor than that of "design." Our pedagogies of multiliteracies must now embrace the "organizing of social futures" in ways that apprentice young people to repertoires of collective action, in which literacy becomes more fully a means of supporting community efforts to promote and bring about more just futures.
