Literacy is like Velcro

So I found this short video on YouTube about how literacy is like Velcro. Gee and Hayes speaks of how “People have claimed that literacy leads to more humane and more modern societies and smarter people.” And of course as we all know and have discussed in class, literacy can have good and bad outcomes based on “specific contexts in which different literacy practices occur.” In the video, it shows how literacy can help.
