Presentation Description

In our presentation, we hope to accomplish the following: 1. To recalibrate prevalent assumptions about the technological skills, literacies, and needs of composition students in light of new educational research. 2. To introduce the combined importance of media literacy, transliteracy, and information literacy in the context of composition. 3. To suggest the educational potential of Facebook not only in supporting collaborative research and response, but also in developing students’ sense of public/private discourse and in furthering new higher education goals of lifelong digital citizenship.
