Summary

Teaching twenty-first century learners may require a shift in literacy identities, both individually and within the collective, whole-school professional learning community (PLC). The purpose of this chapter is two-fold: to examine the types of knowledge teachers need to prepare learners for a changing world, and to explore schools’ collective literacy identities and professional development (PD) needed to shift teachers’ literacy conceptions to reflect the twenty-first century's current and future literacy practices.
