Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time."

Title: Situated Literacies: Reading and Writing in Context
Edited By: David Barton
Roz Ivanic
Mary Hamilton
Description:

Situated Literacies is a rich and varied collection of key writings from leading international scholars in the field of literacy. Each contribution, written in a clear, accessible style, makes the link between literacies in specific contexts and broader practices. Among the issues discussed are: the visual and material aspects, concepts of time and space, how literacies shape and sustain identities in communities, the relationship between texts and their practices and the role of discourse analysis. Together, these studies, along with a foreword by Denny Taylor, make a timely and important contribution to understanding the ways in which literary practices are part of the broader social processes.
