Multiple Literacies

New communication tools, emerging technologies, and social and cultural forces are constantly redefining what we mean by “literacy.” Students now need to use a broad range of literacies to achieve their immediate learning objectives and to recognize and develop their own creative possibilities. Many students are already collaborative writers and content creators in the digital world. This world provides learners with unprecedented and powerful opportunities to develop multiple literacies. In doing so, learners can develop deeper understandings of the global community. Making writing more meaningful and relevant to today’s students means engaging them in this interactive online environment. The Learning Commons helps schools address these challenges.
