  • 6. “literacy is the energy supply of the information age.”
    deborah brandt
  • 7. 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
  • 8. sponsors of literacy are delivery systems for the economies of literacy
  • 9.  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.”
  • 10. 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

  • 24. “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
  • 25. “this means that our democratic institutions (schools and libraries particularly) have to
    work hard and thoughtfully to
    mitigatethese forces.”
    Deborah Brandt
  • 26. 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
  • 27. knight foundation recommendation 7: fund and support public libraries and other community institutions as centers of digital and media training, especially for adults
  • 28. “we have to make sure schools and libraries invite critical and active uses of media that strengthen our democratic potential.” Deborah Brandt
  • 29. “as new and powerful forms of literacy emerge, they diminish the reach and possibilities of receding ones”deborah brandt
  • 30. the idea that literacy is only about print materials is slowly disappearing
  • 31. helping patrons and stakeholders understand the expanding definition of literacy is a muddy but playful endeavor
