Visual Literacy - Metalanguage & Learning - 24 views

  •  
    An increasingly significant aspect of literacy is an awareness of the visual elements that fall beyond the traditional components of written text. Termed 'Visual Literacy' this is the ability to read and create communications that use visual elements. It combines the skills of traditional literacy with knowledge of design, art, graphic arts, media and human perception. It takes literacy further beyond a decoding of text to a decoding of the complete package around the communication.

Educational Leadership:Reading Comprehension:Making Sense of Online Text - 33 views

  •  
    I worked with Julie Curio a few years ago for MA New Literacies. I think it is so important to start teaching students these new skill to comprehend text and to efficiently search a topic. However, I teach graduate level courses and I do these exercises with teachers and many (regardless of age) do not know these strategies. States need to do more PD to bring administrators and teachers up to par so we can make sure our students are ready for whatever comes their way. Thanks, ~Katy
