Fostering Literacies

Fostering Literacies to Engage Life-Long Learners

New technologies and evolving methods of communication and sharing drive expanding understandings of literacy. This reality has made the refinement and demonstration of strong literacy skills ever more important for learners.  Exploring and connecting various ways of knowing and learning is part of the process of personalizing learning and involves embracing new literacies and skills.  The School Library Learning Commons has a leading role in assisting learners to hone and apply an expanded notion of literacy as well as fostering an active reading culture.
