  • 2. how are we helping students create conversationsabout multiple ways of reading and writing today’sworld?
  • 3. Transliteracy is the ability to read,write and interact across a range ofplatforms, tools and media fromsigning and orality throughhandwriting, print, TV, radio and film,to digital social networks.Source: http://nlabnetworks.typepad.com/transliteracy/
  • 4. but what does that really mean?
  • 5. CC image viahttp://www.flickr.com/photos/drh/2578799446/sizes/l/in/photostream/
  • 6. Transliteracy is an umbrella term encompassingdifferent literacies and multiple communicationchannels that require active participationwith and across a range of platforms, andembracing both linear and non-linear messagesDr. Susie AndrettaLondon Metropolitan University Source: http://nlabnetworks.typepad.com/transliteracy/Andretta_Transliteracy.pdf
  • 7. Transliteracy is a “a convergence of literacies”(Lippincott, 2007: 17) as the boundariesbetween medial literacy, digital literacy,technology literacy and information literacybecome blurred when individuals evolve fromconsumers of information to producers ofcontent.Dr. Susie AndrettaLondon Metropolitan University Source: http://nlabnetworks.typepad.com/transliteracy/Andretta_Transliteracy.pdf and http://net.educause.edu/ir/library/pdf/ERM07610.pdf
  • 8. “The most fundamental notion oftransliteracy is the ability to adapt.It’s creating a literacy and fluiditybetween mediums that’s not tiedto space or modality.”Ryan Nadelfounder of 8 Leaf Digital Productions and an instructor at the Vancouver Film SchoolSource: http://spotlight.macfound.org/featured-stories/entry/what-is-this-buzz-word-transliteracy-a-qa-with-ryan-nadel/
  • 9. Transliteracy is concerned with mappingmeaning across different media and not withdeveloping particular literacies about variousmedia. It is not about learning text literacy andvisual literacy and digital literacy in isolationfrom one another but about the interactionamong all these literacies.Tom IpriLiaison Librarian to the College of Media Arts and Design at W. W. Hagerty Library at DrexelUniversitySource: http://crln.acrl.org/content/71/10/532.full
  • 10. “…transliteracy is a shape-shifting eco-systemof behaviours and it is probably neither possible nordesirable for anyone to understand enough to knowthe whole elephant. The vital thing is to remember itis always there and in constant motion. This meansrecognising the limits of your own knowledge andaccepting a degree of messiness and uncertainty.”Professor Sue ThomasDe Montfort University, Leicester, UK Source: http://nlabnetworks.typepad.com/transliteracy/2010/12/argue.html
  • 11. …thinking linearly about literacy is seldoma good idea. Literacy should be thought ofas a holistic ecology, not a linear seriesof events and changes…Professor Sue ThomasDe Montfort University, Leicester, UK Source: http://bit.ly/p4g9YJ
  • 12. “the process of being transliterate does not have an end point. Instead, I like to think of the transliteracy process as being like a nautilus that is constantly growing and adding chambers to its shell.” Jamie Hollier Project Coordinator for Public Computing Centers atce: http://www.jamiehollier.com/2011/07/supporting-transliteracy-part-1/ Colorado State Librarymage via http://www.flickr.com/photos/donlonphoto/2721385316/
  • 13. “embrace the potentials andchallenges of this [participatory]emerging culture not as areplacement for existing printpractices but as an expansion ofthem”~henry jenkins~
