Beyond Literacy: Exploring a Post-Literate Future

8:45 a.m. - 9:45 a.m.
Mike Ridley, Librarian & Instructor, University of Guelph

Reading and writing are doomed. Literacy as we know it is over. Welcome to the post-literate future. From the perspective of a literate person, the idea of a post-literate world seems frightening. It isn’t. At least it needn’t be. Beyond Literacy views this possibility not as some new Dark Age but instead as a kind of liberation of human ability and interaction. Beyond Literacy is about a positive future. Think about it as a search for Alphabet 2.0. Not for the faint of heart, you will definitely enjoy this lively and thought-provoking talk!
