Presentation Description

In “Multiliteracies for a Digital Age”, (2004), Stuart Selber explains that technology and literacy are now necessarily interwoven as digital media increasingly replaces print media. Consequently, to effectively participate in democracy, Selber argues that citizens must become both informed consumers and savvy producers of digital media. Our panel considers some of the ways in which citizens currently navigate digital media to find sources of information to empower their decision-making and speculates on ways in which they could do so more effectively in the future.
