“ Transliteracy is the ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media from singing and orality through handwriting, print, TV, radio and film, to digital social networks.”
According to the Media Literacy Project , “Media literate youth and adults are better able to understand the complex messages we receive from television, radio, Internet, newspapers, magazines, books, billboards, video games, music, and all other forms of media.”
Groups like Partnership for 21 st Century Skills advocate for inclusion of technology and media literacy skills into traditional curricula in order to meet demand of 21 st century life.
