Depaul’s Definition of literacy

DePaul’s Definition of literacy

“We are helping students become more literate. By literacy, we do not mean merely learning to read and write academic discourse, but also learning ways of reading, writing, thinking, speaking, listening, persuading, informing, acting, and knowing within the contexts of university discourse(s) and the multiple discourses in the world beyond the university.”

This definition might be worth reflecting on at some length before, during, and after your Technology & Literacy Projects.
