The nature of literacy is fundamentally changing. Recent advances in digital media and in the field of neuroscience have shown us that oral literacy (listening and speaking) is, once again, becoming more and more important. Here Rose and Dalton argue that traditional definitions of literacy are too narrow, and must be expanded to include listening. It concludes with recommendations on how to include listening in the classroom.
