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: Language Development and Education
Subtitle: Children with Varying Language Experiences
Written By: Paula Menyuk
Maria Estela Brisk
Description:

We now know much more about the process of language development in all
children, and also much more about variations in the process due to
multi-cultural and multi-linguistic backgrounds, and developmental
anomalies. The book describes both the remarkable changes in language
knowledge and use that occur from infancy through high school, and also the
differences in the process due to variations in experience. What has been
found to be good educational practice during each of these stages is
discussed, emphasising that among other things, good practice involves
awareness of, and planning for, diversity in the abilities of children.
