Scaffolding the New Social Literacies for K-12

My Multimedia and Internet @ Schools Pipeline Column for the Mar. / Apr. 2008 issue addresses some of the questions around teaching K-12 learners how to handle the social world online.
Scaffolding the New Social Literacies
“OMG – reading literacy and numeracy, civic literacy and all the rest. Now we’re hearing that schools must expand the teaching of information literacy, computer literacy, media literacy, critical literacy, health literacy, technacy and transliteracy. And, do it all across the curricula. Dozens of types of literacy are discussed on websites and Wikipedia. How can we possibly keep up with another one!? Sometimes it seems that getting everyone through the 3 R’s is challenging enough.”
