Literacy/Transliteracy video

Are You Literate/Transliterate? | BlogHer in which she argues that 'In order to survive in the information age we will become transliterate. It is not as scary as it sounds. We do this intuitively on a daily basis.' Her post includes this interesting video from The Literacy Project. This is especially timely because on Monday 28th Jan we're holding a one day workshop on making transliterate objects, and we'll be recording some video during the day. I'll be curious to see how the two compare. It's also somewhat comforting to see that whilst we struggle to define transliteracy there's still a lot of uncertainty around the root word itself!
