The New Literacies

Presenter

For years, paper and ink were only cheap and easy technologies that everyday people had to record our ideas, muse over them, and show them to others. But now we have a flurry of new modes to capture and share ideas: Video, photography, data, and 3D design and printing. What new types of expression and creativity are possible as we develop these "new literacies"? How do they change the way we think -- and what we think about? This talk will explore the fascinating implications of these new styles.
