Key Competences for the 21st Century Learner

Reading literacies: the foundation of effective language learning

Reading is fundamental to our understanding of language and a key competence in developing autonomous learning. What skills are involved in becoming a competent reader in any medium? In this webinar, we will look at three key literacies which are the foundation of developing effective reading skills: visual literacy, critical literacy and information literacy.  Using examples from Lead the Way, we will consider how each literacy contributes to successful reading competence and how we can assess learners in these literacies.
