ANNE LIEZLE HORIO EDUC 106 SOCIAL LITERACY According to Susie Plaggermars, Social literacy refers to a student's ability to perform and comprehend social, organizational, and communication skills. It is a student's capacity to communicate effectively with others. Interacting with friends, family, coworkers, teachers, and even people we haven't met face to face is all part of social literacy. It is simple knowing how to use social media tools and platforms to locate and gather information, exchange ideas, and stimulate discussions. In order to learn, you must be able to communicate and express your opinions and thoughts, as well as listen to others' opinions and thoughts. It is tremendously beneficial to have a firm grasp on social cues and conventions. The development of social skills, knowledge, and positive human values is addressed through social literacy. As a result, these elements fuel human beings' motivation and aptitude to act positively and responsibly in a variety of complex social circumstances. For example, it is common for a student to be taught about social and moral responsibility, community involvement, and the principles of being a good citizen throughout his or her educational career. In terms of education, social literacy strives to assist students in developing the abilities necessary to comprehend the different social phenomena, events, and rapid changes that our modern society encounters, as well as how these things affect students' daily lives. The goal of social literacy is to appeal to the interests and needs of students.
