Levels of Literacy by Keith Nettle( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Democracy in western countries now depends on literacy at every level: censuses by which governments can plan for the future; elections which are the cornerstone of democratic choice; local meetings which have agendas and minutes--the whole apparatus of social living is organized and recorded through literacy. This paper is concerned with how literacy as a concept has grown over its history. The paper points out that although it seemed recently that computers might do away with much traditional literacy and numeracy, the reality is quite different--more skills, particularly literacy skills, are needed if individuals are to make full use of computers. It notes recent real setbacks to technological progress in communications--Sweden has announced a drop in the income of electronic publishers, many "dot.com" companies have collapsed, and the next generation of mobile phones has not attracted enough interest in, for example, surfing the Net on a mobile. As to government, the paper sees as one of the problems of contemporary administration that individuals live in a regulatory era with multiple levels of government and subsidiary, in which many of the issues are relatively technical, leading to oversimplification. It asks: So what is the function and value of literacy in such a setting? It cites Britain's newly formed Department of Education and Skills which aims to educate for democracy. The paper considers diverse issues regarding the growth of literacy throughout the western world, including enlarging literacy to take in imaginative literature, and the future of the book and the e-book.

Reading the Future by Keith Nettle( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Given the strong sense of passing time which seems to be wired into human beings, it is only natural that the Year 2000, or y2k in contemporary jargon, should lead to serious speculation about the future. Reading and literacy, old skills relatively speaking, continue rightly to figure in those predictions (along with the technologically advanced media) owing to their perceived importance in the contemporary world. This paper discusses the prediction of the educational and media future which was made by an American futurologist P.H. Wagschall in 1978. The paper reviews where Wagschall was correct--the capacity of the computer to communicate vast amounts of information, for example--and where he was wrong--understating and undervaluing people's reasons for reading, for example. It then considers the reasons human beings read, for utility and for pleasure, principally. It also discusses how governments have encouraged literacy education (sometimes intervening directly), and the transformation of libraries and publishing in recent years. The paper notes that readers have the hardback book, the paperback, the Book Club edition, the audiobook, the abridged book, and now the e-book. And it muses about a way to combat the failure to read voluntarily by those who know how to read. (Nka)
