  10. - our point of perspective as a learner, where our knowledge & experience is situated (to reveal what I am blind to or able to see). - our point of intersection through multiple why begin contexts, world views, personal & professional relationships. at “me”? (short version) - our point of privilege and access to knowledge & experience. - our point of power when forming, managing, and maintaining relationships. - our point of personalization as learning & memory are tied to emotion (my attempt to build my rapport and connection with you).
  11. “People donʼt buy what you do, they buy why you do it.” (Simon Sinek)

  30. Verifiability

  35. strategies/practice
  36. “...the set of abilities and skills where aural, visual, & digital overlap. These include the ability to understand the power of images & sounds, to recognize & use that power, to manipulate & transform them pervasively, & to easily adapt to new forms.” (New Media Consortium, 2005, on ʻnew literaciesʼ)
  37. - new media are texts - information is abundant - surge of multimodal/multimedia expression - authorship increasingly complex assumptions - social contexts collapsing (short version) - potential audience expanding - social connections important - technology tends to be deterministic - digital reputation management vital to citizenry - wayfinding, sensemaking, curation, participation, production vital to literacy
  38. danah boyd pay attention to ... •Properties: persistence, replicability, searchability, scalability, (de)locatability. •Dynamics: invisible audiences, collapsed contexts, blurring of public & private spaces @zephoria

  44. critical competence (ability to select, analyze & participate in texts) (Adapted from Four Resources Model, Freebody & Luke, 1990)
  45. “Education ... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading, an easy prey to sensations and cheap appeals.” (Trevelyan, 1942)
  46. human literacies
  47. “Literacies nourish each other. One literacy helps another to grow. Literacies contain each other and require each other.” (Sheridan, 2000)
  48. Michael Wesch • As we “move toward an environment of instant & infinite information ... we need to move from bring simple knowledgeable to knowledge-able.” • Youtube & other social media mitigate “connection without constraint”. In many cases this @mwesch leaves to “tremendously deep communities”.
  49. “Heroes for our Mediated Culture”
  50. “... the practice of freedom, the means by which men & women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world” (Freire, 1970)
