Description

This resolution grew out of awareness among educators that understanding the new media and using them constructively and creatively actually required developing a new form of literacy-new critical abilities "in reading, listening, viewing, and thinking" that would enable students to deal constructively with complex new modes of delivering information, new multisensory tactics for persuasion, and new technology-based art forms.
