Literacy 2.0 requires a “shift from text centrism to media collage,” writes Jason Ohler in Educational Leadership.
General literacy means being able to read and write the media forms of the day, which currently means being able to construct an articulate, meaningful, navigable media collage. The most common media collage is the Web page, but a number of other media constructs also qualify, including videos, digital stories, mashups, stand-and-deliver PowerPoint presentations, and games and virtual environments, to name a few.
Reading and writing will be more valuable than ever, writes Ohler, who describes himself as a “digital humanist.” And art is the “fourth R.”
