21st Century Literacy

As the 21st century continues, there are many different aspects of advances and changes in literacy since the 20th century. There are many negatives such as: too much reliance on technology, social networking adaptations, adapted literacy with texting, technology etc. Along with this tho, there are many positives such as: sharing ideas or emotions more quickly or freely, having greater ethical responsibilities and tolerance for those with disabilities or literacy challenges, communication which people typically out of reach. Overall I would say that the biggest difference in literacy between the 20th and 21st century is technology. I believe that as our society evolves and advances, our level of literacy will have to adapt and represent the particular areas where literacy is important to these societal developments.
