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.

    This is really cool! It reminds me of Wordle a bit. The ads are a little frustrating and get in the way, but otherwise it's pretty fun. Also interesting to see how words are connected to each other. I typed in "farce" and got definitons for cooking procedures as well as the literary definition. Who knew?? :)
