Visual Literacy and 21st Century Skills Workshop

Tomorrow I'll be presenting in Palos Heights District 128 for my good buddy Jim O'Hagan-the topic is visual literacy. I'm fortunate that I'll also be able to see Will Richardson, who is doing the keynote address. Will should be in a good mood, as it looks like the Cubs will put one in the win column tonight.

I've prepared a 3-part visual literacy and 21st Century learning wiki to support my presentation. Part 1 sets the stage with an overview of some dynamic emerging visual image resources that illustrate the amazing growth and potential of visuals online, Part 2 is my rationale for including visual literacy instruction in education, and Part 3 aligns my definition of visual literacy with suggestions for classroom instruction and activities.
