Abstract: This article explores the changing perspective on the concept of literacy to literacies and its’ implication for literacy pedagogy. The traditional definition of literacy, which refers to the ability to communicate through verbal mode has been replaced by the emergence of the term literacies, encompassing concepts of literacy in various contexts. Literacy pedagogy, however, is still facing the issue related to equity and social justice. Meanwhile, the emergent of new media (Green & Beavis, 2013) and the nature of socioeconomic demands (Gee, 2014) have given a new challenge for literacy pedagogy to reform. The article proposes the integration of new literacies into school curriculum as a respond to the demand of contemporary time which expects individuals to have the ability to design identities, affinity groups, and networks as well as to have the ability to build portfolio. The article argues that basic literacy skills offered at school should encompass the skill to communicate using new media. Additionally, the teaching of new literacies is expected to equally benefit students from both culturally and linguistically dominant background as well as the nondominant ones. The debates on the integration of new literacies into school curriculum revolve around the issue on methodology. The field is widely open to contribution, as the development of new media outraces the development of literacy pedagogy. Therefore, methodologies to teach new literacies at school will always be in need for improvement. (More)
