About This Seminar

When a bright child has difficulty reading, we may think that it is a learning disability or a problematic instructional strategy. Or it could be an impact of media learning. Literacy experts have identified an emerging phenomenon in the developed world: “Post-Literacy.” According to a number of studies, numerous children who have grown up in a highly literate society are functionally illiterate. They can read and write, but they prefer to learn through non-literate means. In this seminar, we will explore Post-Literacy and its impacts on learning.
