This edition of the Orality Journal explores how orality works within communities, both in the oral and digitoral generations. We desire to discover how vital information permeates networks as well as how participatory learning enables the delivery of that information and makes “it stick” in the individual and the community. We are certain you will find this issue interesting, and we invite your feedback.
