Literacies & their spaces Literacies & their spaces Presentation Transcript

  • Literacies & Their Spaces
  • Literacy in Practice • Do we have too many definitions of literacy (Computer literacy, Christian literacy, television literacy, etc.)? • Have we made literacy “mean so many different things” that it is now meaningless itself?
