EP 43 Read into Documentation – an Interview with author Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano

By Alanna King

Alanna speaks with author and blogger Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano [A Guide to Documenting Learning: http://langwitches.org/blog/2018/01/30/now-available-a-guide-to-documenting-learning/]
We uncover how the fluid nature of media needs to be taught in the language arts/English classroom. Through the observations/conversations with students, Silvia calls for a new pedagogical mindset to embrace the reach and potential of technology for expression and communication. Her international background as a student and as a parent allowed Silvia to see the arbitrary nature of education and to recognize the untapped potential for learners. We agree that the pandemic is putting a spotlight on the gaps in society’s transliteracy. A master class in heutagogy.
