    • Crumbling of the canon
    • Dramatic change in regards to skills

    The Jewish Literacy and the New Literacy Texts will not survive unless they adapt to new ways of representation

    • It is about hard evidence and facts
    • we may like it or moan about it, we can’t change it.
    • Invest in finding creative ways to transfer old
    • content into new vessels -
    • rather than assume that it will happen by itself
    • We cannot establish a new Facebook -
    • we should join existing trends rather than create new ones .
    • Adopt a “bridging” strategy between the old literacy and the new one –
    • rather than giving up one for the other
