1400’s - scribes were irreplaceable
Johannes Gutenberg - moveable type
“Professional self-conception and self-
defense, so valuable in ordinary times,
become a disadvantage in revolutionary
ones, because professionals are always
concerned with threats to the profession.”

International Reading Council

   “To become fully literate in today’s world,
     students must become proficient in the new
     literacies of ICT (information and
     communication technology). Therefore,
     literacy educators have a responsibility to
     effectively integrate these technologies into
     the literacy curriculum in order to prepare
     students for the literacy future they deserve.”
   A position statement of the International Reading Council, “Integrating Literacy and
     Technology into the Curriculum”
      Expanded Definition of
Information literacy, digital literacy, new literacy,
computer literacy, computer-technology literacy,
critical literacy and media literacy
"Our concept of literacy has been based on the assumption that
print is the primary carrier of information in our culture and that
the most important skills are those that enable students to
understand and express themselves in text. The new definition
of literacy is based on a different assumption: that digital
technology is rapidly becoming a primary carrier of information
and that the broader means of expression this technology
makes possible are now critical for education. Text literacy is
necessary and valuable, but no longer sufficient.” Meyer/Rose,

Kerpoof allows you to easily create pictures, stories, and
animated movies. Pictures can be created by first selecting a
scene from a variety of different back-drops, and then dragging
and dropping objects (thousands of which are available) onto
the 3D scene. Stories can be created by linking multiple scenes
together and adding text.

Kerpoof also allows animated movies to be created with an
intuitive interface. The animation interface has been designed to
introduce basic concepts to children in a fun context. Kerpoof

Re-Think Your Library Media
"What our students understand (and that we, as
teachers, seem blind to) is that the very nature of
information has changed. It's changed in what it looks
like, what we look at to view it, where we find it, what
we can do with it, and how we communicate it. We
live in a brand new, and dynamically rich information
environment, and if we are going to reach our
students in a way that is relevant to their world and
their future (and ours), then we must teach them from
this new information environment." -David Warlick
