Trends in literacy for 2017 (infographic)

International Literacy Association has just released an annual What’s Hot in Literacy report aimed at spotting the changing literacy trends from year to year.

The report is based on a survey conducted among 1,500 literacy leaders from almost 90 countries and territories from across the world.

An analysis of survey findings from a cross-sector of literacy leaders from Argentina to Zambia indicates a need to redirect conversations around literacy with a focus on what is important to literacy educators. Identifying these gaps, and then developing solutions to narrow them, will help the global community move the needle on literacy.
