Perhaps, English/Western Literacy has been imposed in foreign territories (Africa/India), thus colonization of literacy practices. So I wonder, how we can decolonize.

Thanks Seun - it has been a theme which runs quite a long way back in Brian's writings..... but not one we perhaps naturally think of...

Mostafa (Parviz) Hasrati
01:15:32
Great reflections Malini. Thanks.
Hélène Boëthius
01:16:41
How relevant showing position in the room! We seem to keep forgetting this in our practise!
Hélène Boëthius
01:23:20
You are spot on. Our literacy programs need to meet felt needs.
Anna-Karin Steinholtz
01:25:05
Wow, great, the voice of the learner!
Kathryn Asiku
01:25:20
Fascinating presentation. Thank you so much. Lots to think about there.
Averil West
01:25:21
You are spot on. Agree that the programs need to be targeted towards the needs of the learners.
Caroline Dyer
01:25:31
thanks for another mind stretching input!
seun ajayi
01:25:39
We must always be learner focus. Weldone Ahmmardouh!
Mohammad Yasin Samim
01:25:51
Useful information for policy and programme design. Listen to the learners and get them engaged in choosing how to learn and what to learn
Mostafa (Parviz) Hasrati
01:26:30
Excellent Ahmmardouh! Very much reflecting Brian's position on literacy.
LINDSAY HOWARD
01:26:41
Zikomo! I loved the point that is a ‘call for action’ and that for me is the dialogue between the learners, facilitators and materials to customise the adult programmes
seun ajayi
01:28:45
How does listening to learners feed into the SOW--??
Juliana Santos
01:37:17
Helo everyone, I would be glad if the speakers could answer the following question after their speech: como vocês analisam as práticas de letramento no contexto de movimentos sociais no espaço acadêmico, como o movimento antirracista ou o movimento feminista em relação aos letramentos desenvolvidos na instituição universitária propriamente dita? Como legitimar esses letramentos de fora da sala de aula como parte da pluralidade dos letramentos acadêmicos?
Juliana Santos
01:37:56
let mw write in English: how do you analyze literacy practices in the context of social movements in the academic space, such as the anti-racist movement or the feminist movement in relation to the literacies developed in the university institution itself?
Anna-Karin Steinholtz
01:40:14
Great, thanks Hélène!
Kathryn Asiku
01:40:52
Really enjoyed your presentation! Thank you for these ideas.
Mohammad Yasin Samim
01:40:54
Effectively explaining why some literacy projects in some developing countries don't deliver the intended result and empower the communities and people- because they are listened to and not engaged. Pracitical strategies how decolonize literacy. One important lessons is understanding and valuing the learners, particularly the adults. Thank you Helen. Will learn more from ALEF
Mostafa (Parviz) Hasrati
01:40:57
I enjoyed and learned a lot Helene. Thanks
Mary Hamilton
01:41:19
This book may be of interest in terms of literacy in the context of social movements https://www.routledge.com/Researching-Protest-Literacies-Literacy-as-Protest-in-the-Favelas-of-Rio/Duncan/p/book/9780367374013 Ideally, it would have been better to publish this book a few years ago probably, but at the very least it remains an honest attempt to document the very distinctive time and place in which I had the opportunity to do fieldwork. I hope there is something of interest in it for you and for others doing literacy studies research.All the best,Jamie Duncan
Margareta Långbacka Walker
01:42:05
Well done, Hélène! Heja!
Juliana Santos
01:43:17
Thanks for the recomendation, Mrs. Hamilton!
Mohammad Yasin Samim
01:49:06
Very interesting and comperehensive summary of the what we can learn from Brian
Karen Lynn
01:49:09
Very helpful Ahmmardouh. What kind of needs assessment (s) can you do to determine someone's 'local literacy'?
Karen Lynn
01:50:45
Thank you Mostafa so much for alerting me to this wonderful conference. (from Seneca)
Elizabeth Magee
01:53:10
We teachers also have domination by the commercial educational publishers who are seen as authorities who decide what people need to learn.
Sara Venuto
01:55:55
the film "blackboards" is around education in Afghanistan
Naeim Maleki
01:57:06
Great talk Samim sahib.
Mostafa (Parviz) Hasrati
01:57:36
Thank you for your contribution, Mohammad.
LINDSAY HOWARD
01:57:38
Question: after following a needs assessment with the people across a country and compiling that village data, the policy makers came back and took the ‘interpretative prerogative’ to re-organise the data to fit a compromise that was more in line with their views for the curriculum. How to continue with the decolonisation?
Rie Koarai
01:57:42
Thank you so much Samim san
Elizabeth Magee
02:00:17
What we need to do is a huge departure from expectations of our sponsoring organizations, schools, ngo's, donors. How do we negotiate with them?
Catherine Murphy
02:00:20
Good Morning from California, where it is 6:20 am!
Katy Newell-Jones
02:00:47
Goodmorning Catherine - welcome.
Elizabeth Magee
02:00:48
Catherine, It is worth it!
Anu Haden
02:01:23
Thank you so much Mohammad! I am curious how promising the localized flexible learning approach is for addressing ethnolinguistic/cultural diversity?
Nan Frydland
02:04:49
Good morning from a Connecticut classroom!
Anna-Karin Steinholtz
02:28:22
Will there be a list of participants? We want to talk more!
Katy Newell-Jones
02:28:49
shall I share the jamboard screen??
Elizabeth Magee
02:29:05
Yes, Anna-Karin, we need the names of other participants!
Natasha Rennolds
02:29:05
Chris, already has
Ahmmardouh Mjaya
02:33:03
Just to say that it should say 'more than 15' and not 'one of the 50' languages in Malawi
Mohammad Yasin Samim
02:33:30
One Request: It would be highly appreciated if we can receive the books of later Brian and Professor Rogers'. The discussion brought by Biran and his co-researchers are revolutionary in the sense that enable us to think differently in design and delivery of education services. Will be pleased to have resources books
Hélène Boëthius
02:36:11

Anu Haden
02:36:36
Interesting point about exclusion, especially in accessing higher education
Mohammad Yasin Samim
02:38:41
Strong argument: Design and adopt an inclusive approach, don't exclude marginalized all communities and let their voices to be heard. Recognize their power and potential contribution for the learning process
Ana Freere
02:38:43
Thank you so much - marvellous input and discussion. I am sorry I need to leave. Ana
Elizabeth Magee
02:39:00
Bravo, Alan Rogers!
Hélène Boëthius
02:39:01
Thanks for bringing up this important issue of what people expect the literacy course to be like. I do find, however, that once you introduce a participatory model, people catch on and enjoy it immensely.
Nick Street
02:40:00
