Transliteracy and the School Library Program: bringing all the literacy concepts together.
The term transliteracy refers to the connects between the ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media from text, signing and orality through handwriting, print, television, streaming video, computer programs and software, mash-ups, radio and film, to digital, mobile , and social networks.
Transliteracy does not replace other literacy, but rather incorporates, media literacy, digital literacy, mobile literacy, visual literacy, and social literacy (Thomas, et al).
The site Libraries and Transliteracy discusses transliteracy as a set of 21st century skills defined as " the ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools, and media, from signing and orality through handwriting, print, TV, radio and film, to digital social networks."
Articles to explore and learn more about transliteracy including the perspective of a school librarian trying to fit into the school setting. School librarians are trained to participate in collaboration and we understand that teaching and learning is a two way street.
