  • “An artist is someone who uses bravery, insight, creativity, and boldness to challenge the status quo. And an artist takes it personally.  Art is a personal gift that changes the recipient. An artist is an individual who creates art. The more people you change, the more you change them, the more effective your art is.”

    seth godin
  • libraries as sites of participatory culture
  • relatively low barriers to artistic expression and civic engagement
  • strong support for creating and sharing one’s creations with others
  • what is known by the most experienced ispassed along to novices
  • members believe that their contributions matter
  • members feel some degree of social connection with one another (at the least they care what other people think about what they have created)
  • a participatory climate is conducive to a library program acting as a powerful and positive sponsor of transliteracy by creating conversations for learning via multiple mediums
  • create conversations about multiple ways of reading and writing today’s world
  • transliteracy is the ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media from signing and orality through handwriting, print, TV, radio and film, to digital social networks

  • transliteracy is the umbrella for how people are using multiple literacies--traditional (text, art, music) and emerging (digital, new media, privacy, financial)--to access and share information as well as create new meaning
    CC image via http://www.flickr.com/photos/roome/515419918/sizes/l/
  • transliteracy provides us a way of theorizing how these literacies transact with each other for meaning making
    CC image via http://www.flickr.com/photos/tokyolunch/95559048/
  • transliteracy is the conceptualization of how we use these literacies than the tools or containers although certainly the ways we access information, share, and create it have taken on new forms

  • “embrace the potentials and challenges of this [participatory] emerging culture not as a replacement for existing print practices but as an expansion of them” ~henry jenkins~
  • as sponsors of transliteracy, libraries can close the participation gap
  • 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
  • “we have to make sure schools and libraries invite critical and active uses of media that strengthen our democratic potential.” Deborah Brandt
