Orchestrating the Media Collage
Ohler, Jason
Educational Leadership, v66 n6 p8-13 Mar 2009
Modern literacy has always meant being able to both read and write narrative in the media forms of the day, whatever they may be. Just being able to read is not sufficient. A new dimension of literacy is now in play--namely, the ability to adapt to new media forms and fit them into the overall media collage quickly and effectively. A strong case can be made that commanding new media constitutes the current form of general literacy and that adding the modifier digital is simply not necessary anymore. Whether or not this is the case, digital literacy warrants a central focus in K-12 learning communities. This article presents eight guidelines that can help teachers promote the crucial skills associated with digital literacy. (Contains 2 endnotes.)
