Picture-Perfect Generation: Visually Stimulated or Visually Literate?

Susan E. Metros, EDUCAUSE Connect, Sept 15, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I have mentioned Susan E. Metros and visual literacy in the past. Here is a presentation (audio and slides) in which she questions whether students are literate "in engaging in a vocabulary of design and the language of images." She argues that we need to consider what it means to be 'literate' in a media-rich society. Related: a report says, "U.S. schools must teach 21st-century skills for the nation to be globally competitive." Also related: another report says "students are anything but masters of technology."
