Digital Literacy: Language and Thought

Language is the means for a shared and consistent view of the world.

Theatre of the Mind Project

Human language is both a medium for communication and a medium for thought. It is at the heart of literacy, digital or otherwise.

With our digital technology, it should be possible to animate a natural language text, and show its meaning -- much like putting on a play from a script. In the process, we gain understanding of what it takes to understand language, and quite possibly we could develop some useful tools for dealing with texts and for encouraging literacy.
