New literacies in a digital world

  2. 2. IntroductionIntroduction Classrooms are rapidly moving beyond traditional notions of text. For years, teachers relied almost completely on books and other print texts— especially in terms of the texts that students were asked to compose. Because of the changes in technologies available to us today however, texts in the classroom frequently include a much wider range of modalities —systems that people use to make meaning. In fact, a single text often engages more than one way of making meaning (National Council of Teachers of English, 2005). Yamith Fandiño Bogotá, Colombia, 2016 2

  4. 4. Literacy and new literaciesLiteracy and new literacies • Digital literacies are the essential skills for managing information and communication in our rapidly changing and increasingly digital world. • They are adaptable in order to accommodate constantly changing technologies, whereas traditional technical skill sets are static and quickly become outdated. Yamith Fandiño Bogotá, Colombia, 2016 4
  5. 5. Literacy and new literaciesLiteracy and new literacies • Literacy includes not only reading and writing but truly the ability to engage in all types of communication—whether textual, graphical, auditory, or otherwise. Furthermore, literacy involves not just communication but also managing the information that is transmitted by any communication medium (Summey, 2013, p. 3). • Digital literacies represent in whole the essential skills for managing information and communication in the rapidly changing and increasingly digital world that is the 21st century (Summey, 2013, p. 4).

  8. 8. Digital literaciesDigital literacies • Educators often teach with technology as they use document cameras, interactive whiteboards, and web-enhanced project-based learning to facilitate instruction. This, however, does little to equip students with the skills they need beyond the classroom (Summey, 2013, p. 21). • Infusing digital literacies within the very fabric of content-area instruction will result in authentic learning experiences that not only teach the relevant subject-matter and incorporate 21st-century technology but also address the vital literacy skills that are emphasized in [educational technology standards] (Summey, 2013, p. 21) Yamith Fandiño Bogotá, Colombia, 2016 8

  10. 10. QuestionsQuestions • Based on your comprehension, what would you say new literacies are? • Why is learning with new literacies essential for students? • How do the roles of EFL teachers change when they strive to incorporate new literacies into their classes?
