I can't decide what I think about the concept of transliteracy. I can see some of what the transliteracy proponents are getting at, but at other times, it feel like so much blindly obvious BS. Am I missing the point? Is transliteracy a real and susbstantive concept of just the latest trendy meme (trendliteracy?).
Transliteracy: Crossing divides. First Monday, 12, 3 December 2007
Abstract: Transliteracy might provide a unifying perspective on what it means to be literate in the twenty–first century. It is not a new behavior but has only been identified as a working concept since the Internet generated new ways of thinking about human communication. This article 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, and ethnography.
