Literacies for Learning in Further Education The first 9 minutes of a 47 minute film based on interviews with lecturers in Further Education. The film counters the current limited view of reading and writing as just 'basic skills'. Full DVD and 38 page colour booklet available from Amazon. It reports research in which subject and vocational lecturers explored the varied social and professional practices of reading and writing which their students use in their daily lives, and need for their studies and careers. The findings offer a valuable framework for teachers and awarding bodies to make the reading and writing within the curriculum more useful for learning and/or more relevant to students' intended careers. The film comes with a 38 page colour booklet with the framework and further information. It is intended as a resource for professional development, teacher education and policy review.

CollabTech 2010: Keynote: Social Media, Participative Pedagogy, and Digital Literacies Date: Thursday, May 6th, 2010 Location: Thwing Center Ballroom at Case Western Reserve Unviersity Speaker: Howard Rheingold There are a lot of voices talking about social media today, but Howard Rheingold defined the field before it existed. A noted author and commentator, Rheingold has a proven record of accurate technology and social forecasting, over two decades of syndicated columns, best-selling books, and pioneering online enterprises. His latest research and forthcoming book focuses on 21st century literacies -- how individuals and organizations learn to use digital media effectively and credibly. He coined the term "virtual community" in 1987 An acknowledged authority on the marriage of mobile phone, PC, and wireless internet, Rheingold's previous work reveals how this convergence has changed the way we meet, mate, entertain, govern, and conduct business. His book Smart Mobs, named one of the Big Ideas books of 2002 by The New York Times, chronicles the new forms of collective action and cooperation made possible by mobile communications, pervasive computing, and the Internet. Rheingold is the recipient of a 2008 MacArthur Knowledge-Networking Grant through the Foundation's Digital Media and Learning Competition. He was founding Executive Editor of Hotwired, the first commercial webzine where the web-based discussion forum and the online banner ad were invented. Rheingold has appeared on Today, Good Morning America, ABC Primetime Live, CNN, CBS News, NBC News ...

Understanding New Literacies for New Times: Pedagogy in Action The challenges associated with the emergence of new literacies within the 21st Century Standards and constructing environments in the classroom that address students life experiences outside the school is a daunting task for teachers. This virtual presentation will highlight the practices of one middle school and one second grade teacher who are engaging children in literacy practices that includes digital media and online environments. The examples shared in this virtual presentation include the use of blogging in Writers' Workshop and constructing digital stories. It is critical that teachers begin to align their teaching with what students are experiencing in their lives outside the school. Luke (1998, p 305) states students "already face and live in the complexities of New Times: a globalized economy, the emergence of new hybrid forms of identities, and new technologies that are transforming traditional print." Therefore, teachers need to be able to help students to know how to critically ***yse texts and produce texts in all the various forms in order to gain literate competence for a rapidly changing work place. Students now engage in reading that is more than the ability to decode and comprehend print as we have known it, and they are involved in a variety of texts that include digital media and online environments. When teachers can draw upon these out of school literacies and use them within the classroom context, they have opportunities to engage students in ...

Student Work: Poster and Podcast on Literacies The Multiple Literacies Research Unit would like to share this poster and podcast presentation exploring Multiliteracies. However, we would like to note that Multiple Literacies Theory (MLT) is not synonymous with Multiliteracies. Here is an operationalization of MLT: - Literacies are a construct (a combination of social, physical, economic assemblages, ...). - Literacies consist of words, gestures, attitudes, and ways of listening, speaking, writing, human and non-human: ways of becoming with the world. - They are texts, in a broad sense (for example, music, visual arts (painting, sculpting), physics, mathematics, digital remixes). - Texts are an assemblage of events from which sense emerges. Literacies can be are taken up as visual, oral, written, tactile, olfactory, and in multimodal digital. - They fuse with religion, gender, race, culture, and power, and that produce speakers, writers, artists, digital avatars: communities. - Literacies are actualized according to a particular context in time and in space in which they operate. - Given the nomadic tendencies of literacies; they are not wed to a context, but are taken up in unpredictable ways across various contexts. Literacies involve constant movement in the processes of becoming other. In short, literacies are about reading, reading the world, and self as texts.

New Literacies in the Classroom Digital Capital, Student Identity, and Third Space Brian Morgan, SUNY Geneseo Despite what students and teachers believe about their own engagement with New Literacies and their connection with print-based, school sanctioned literacies, New Literacies and print-based literacies are not unconnected (Alvermann, 2001; Alexander, 2006; Baird & Fisher, 2005-2006).Adolescents are able to navigate adeptly the old and New Literacies (Lankshear &Knobel, 2006; Lankshear, 2007). They move through and between paper-based and New Literacies for academic, economic, and social purposes at school, at work, and at home. Given the quantity of time students spend online, it seems foolish to ignore the role of the Internet in the lives of students and the effects of enabling the instantiation of that role in students' academic lives. This paper describes the experience of introducing a blog into an English literature classroom in an alternative education classroom over the course of two years and how the students there reconstructed the blog into a third space for identity and Discourses. It also discusses the effects of student online literacies on pedagogy and students and to what use knowledge of that role can be put to use in the classroom.
