8: How We Learn Social Literacy | Social literacy comes easy for some as "learning is socially mediated." Social literacy is learned everyday through interactions with others in ones environment. We observe social interactions in our daily lives and how we should act appropriately during each situation. Since we can actually SEE and NOTICE social literacy without interaction, we can mimic and repeat the behavior of others. These can be learned from peers, parents, teachers, etc. The more experienced socially literate people scaffold their techniques and online etiquette to help educate others.
