{June 29, 2006}   Literacy Quote

During a presentation at the American Library Association this past weekend I picked up a quote that I want to keep floating out there in the net/blogsphere.

“True literacy is the ability to fruitfully engage complex tasks.”
— Michael Gorman

That kind of thought really helps those of us who struggle with the justification of new media activities within a rather rigid educational and institutional structure that bases its actions upon traditional definitions of literacy.
