#AASL12 Fall Forum: Transliteracy and the School Library Program
Transliteracy is the topic of this year's Association of American School Librarians Fall Forum in Greenville, South Carolina, taking place this week 12/13 October 2012. Transliteracy and the School Library Program is "designed to help school librarians develop strategies for integrating transliteracy skills into subject areas across the curriculum. Discussions will articulate the range of skills known as transliteracy skills and highlight current research on how young people learn and play in the contemporary online environment." Definitely worth a follow #aasl12
Transliteracy is 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.
