What a Journey!

What a journey!

We celebrated the richness of orality, its alluring qualities, and then its remediation through text. We realized that our fears of change have existed for throughout history when we read Postman and then realized how well text remediated orality.

We saw how literacy evolved from scroll to codex , how it restructures consciousness, effected the political life, teaching & learning style and economic life. We saw it change forms through technopoly!

The remediation of the overpowering text through multimodality was deemed traumatic for some while celebrated by others as it would reach out to more people. Very similar to the remediation of text!

Even as we examine multiliteracies, apply it in our professional and everyday lives, we look at its limitations – setting the path to remediate it.

The journey continues!

I can just imagine how interesting this journey will continue to be…

Helen inspired me to add my own poem …

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep
