The 7 Important Literacies of The 21st Century Education ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

See on Scoop.it21 century education

Literacy is a deceptively broad topic  that can be approached from various lenses. Schoolars from Plato to James Paul Gee have extensively written on the topic, each arguing for the validity of the theoretical lens through which they see it. Going through these theories I find myself inclining more to the progressivist camp or the ” New Literacies” camp. Obviously,we are not in front of a single literacy but rather multiple literacies. The momentum of this  multiplicity of literacies has tremendously increased with the introduction of technology.

Pippa Davies @PippaDavies ‘s insight:

Amen to all these literacies in 21st century education.  Add biblical literacy and you have a well rounded scholar 🙂
