1. Recent technological developments have caused a seismic shift in modern literacy practices. We are moving rapidly away from the traditional dominance of the written word on the printed page towards a new, image-led communication landscape. Visual literacy is the ability to read, understand and question the meanings of images that saturate our everyday lives.

    Matthew Sowerby has a BA(Hons) in Photographic Studies and a Masters in Education. After working as a freelance photographer Matthew began teaching photography, initially in Glasgow and most recently as senior lecturer in Photography, Art & Design at Edinburgh College. An early-adopter of user-driven networked communities of practice to support learning, Matthew is currently researching the central role of digital photography in modern literacy practices.
