Handbook of Research on Social Software and Developing Community Ontologies

Although full preview is not available, I believe enough of the chapter, “Transliteracy as a Unifying Perspective” is available to give a reader the essence of the full chapter text; you may access the chapter preview by clicking on the Google Book preview of Handbook of Research on Social Software and Developing Community Ontologies.

From the chapter abstract:

Transliteracy might provide a unifying perspective on what it means to be literate in the 21st Century. It is not a new behaviour but has been identified as a working concept since the internet generated new ways of thinking about human communication. This chapter defines transliteracy as “the ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media from signing and orality through handwriting, print, TV, radio and film, to digital social networks” and opens the debate with examples from history, orality, philosophy, literature, ethnography and education. The authors invite responses, expansion, and development. See also http://www.transliteracy.com
