  • “literacy is the energy supply of the information age.”
    deborah brandt
  • a sponsor of literacy includes any agent who enables, supports, teaches, and models, as well as recruits, regulates, suppresses, or withholds literacy—and gains advantage by it in some way
  • sponsors of literacy are delivery systems for the economies of literacy
  •  Brandt views literacy as a “valuable—and volatile property” that can potentially help individuals gain “…power or pleasure, [accrue] information, civil rights, education, spirituality, status, [and] money.”
  • an examination of a person’s literacy sponsors, “… exposes the deeply textured history that lies within the literacy practices of institutions and within any individuals’ literacy experiences. Accumulated layers of sponsoring influences---in families, workplaces, schools, memory----carry forms of literacy that have been shaped out of ideological and economic struggles of the past.”
    deborah brandt

  • “the more that the school organizes literacy teaching and learning to serve the needs of the economic system, the more it betrays its democratic possibilities” deborah brandt
  • “this means that our democratic institutions (schools and libraries particularly) have to
    work hard and thoughtfully to
    mitigatethese forces.”
    Deborah Brandt
  • knight foundation recommendation 6: integrate digital and media literacy as critical elements for education at all levels through collaboration among federal, state, and local education officials
  • knight foundation recommendation 7: fund and support public libraries and other community institutions as centers of digital and media training, especially for adults
  • “we have to make sure schools and libraries invite critical and active uses of media that strengthen our democratic potential.” Deborah Brandt
  • “as new and powerful forms of literacy emerge, they diminish the reach and possibilities of receding ones”deborah brandt
  • the idea that literacy is only about print materials is slowly disappearing
  • helping patrons and stakeholders understand the expanding definition of literacy is a muddy but playful endeavor

  • how do we disrupt limited perceptions of literacy and open up conversations about the possibilities of transliteracy?
    Image used under a CC license from http://www.flickr.com/photos/stuckincustoms/4034124468/sizes/l/
  • how do we position literacy as a means for equity and democracy rather than a commodity shaped by extrinsic motivation?
  • how do we invite and facilitate conversations about transliteracy with our patrons?
  • a participatory climate is conducive to a library program acting as a powerful and positive sponsor of transliteracy
  • participatory librarianship is about inviting and creating spaces for …
