CFP – 3Ts 2013: Transliteracy from Cradle to Career Conference – Deadline 26 November

Saratoga

I'm delighted to have been asked to keynote at this conference at SUNY Empire State College Center for Distance Learning, March 15, 2013. The full CFP is here and the deadline is 26 Nov.

Conference Proposals should address one or more of the following questions:

  • What are the 21st century literacies that learners need from K-12 to higher education? 
  • How do we transition transliterate learners from cradle to career? 
  • Will transliteracy bridge literacy education from cradle to career? 
  • How do we engage K-12 teachers and college educators in transliteracy conversations and collaborations? 
  • How does technology inform and support our transliteracy teaching practices? 
  • In a world of new literacies, how do we integrate transliteracy, metaliteracy, and/or media and information literacy in our teaching?

There's a lot to discuss! I'm very much looking forward to meeting my American colleagues.

Transliteracy en Francais #translitteratie #translitteraties #tranlitteratie


20121108_170751Last week in Paris I learned there are several French Twitter hashtags for transliteracy including #translitteratie #translitteraties and #tranlitteratie (I've skipped the accents, apologies) but the one which seemed to win out was #translitteratie which was heavily used by @AnneCordier a Lecturer in Information Sciences and Communication at the University of Rouen, who provided an excellent running commentary to the proceedings.

It was a great opportunity to learn about French approaches to transliteracy and my first time wearing headphones for simultaneous translation, which was produced from a portable translation unit parked at the back of the room. See the picture. Ingenious!

The presentations are all available here, in a wonderful mishmash of french and english.  http://www.stef.ens-cachan.fr/manifs/translit/colloque_translit_det.html
