Abstract:

"In Language and Learning in the Digital Age", linguist James Paul Gee and
educator Elisabeth Hayes deal with the forces unleashed by today's digital
media, forces that are transforming language and learning for good and ill.

They argue that the role of oral language is almost always entirely
misunderstood in debates about digital media. Like the earlier inventions of
writing and print, digital media actually power up or enhance the powers of
oral language.

Gee and Hayes deal, as well, with current digital transformations of language
and literacy in the context of a growing crisis in traditional schooling in
developed countries. With the advent of new forms of digital media, children
are increasingly drawn towards video games, social media, and alternative
ways of learning. Gee and Hayes explore the way in which these alternative
methods of learning can be a force for a paradigm change in schooling.

This is an engaging, accessible read both for undergraduate and graduate
students and for scholars in language, linguistics, education, media and
communication studies.
