The Open K-12 School: Adapting to New Media, and New Literacies Throughout the digital revolution of the past ten years, K-12 schools have reacted to the cultural embrace of new media with caution. Existing educational institutions have lacked the dexterity to incorporate new forms of media, and reconfigure their curricula and teaching practices to accommodate an expanded idea of literacy in the emergent digital landscape.
