“Transliteracy is becoming the new cultural capital” The Unquiet Librarian

In her blog The Unquiet Librarian, Creekview High School librarian Buffy Hamilton writes that "transliteracy is becoming the new cultural capital", continuing:

"As leaders in our school communities, a role we should be embracing,
let us blaze the trail to create a culture of inquiry that encourages
students to use these literacies as a lens for understanding more
deeply how multiple kinds of texts function within our society. Who
better to wave the banner for transliteracy than school librarians?"
