Knowledge, Learning, Community

The paper breaks into essentially three parts, the first identifying a need to define this new literacy, the second suggesting an approach in a “deep path” of mindfulness, and the third applying this approach to education, for example, the idea that "mindfulness leads to a broadening of epistemology and what is considered as knowledge," and the suggestion that " attentional literacy may help ameliorate digital disconnection." There's a lot of overlap between the concept of attention literacy and other literacies, but there may be a niche for the concept. Hard to say. Image: Tremolada.
