Many times we think of literacy as reading and writing. However, we now know the importance of our children acquiring a new kind of literacy: Visual Literacy. This is something that we must teach them and it is becoming ever more apparent that these skills are embedded in our teaching and learning both in and out of the classroom.
I appreciated reading the article by Kevin Kelly, Becoming Screen Literate, in which he breaks down this new generation of screen viewers and the cultural shift occurring in what it now means to be literate. We are being bombarded daily by screens.
