Book Information


Title: International Handbook of Literacy and Technology
Subtitle: Volume II
Edited By: Michael C. McKenna
Linda D. Labbo
Ronald D. Kieffer
David Reinking

This Handbook provides a comprehensive and international representation of
state-of-the art research, theory, and practice related to principal areas
in which significant developments are occurring in the study of literacy
and technology. It offers a glimpse of the commonalities faced by literacy
educators around the world, together with specific challenges raised by
unique circumstances.

The effects of technology on literate activity have been both sweeping and
subtle, marked by an increasing variety of changes that are difficult to
evaluate and project. Perhaps the only prediction that can be offered with
certainty is that the impact of technology is irreversible. Specific
changes may come and go, but literacy and technology seem inextricably
linked. This Handbook is dedicated to that linkage and to examining the
intricacies that define it.

"International Handbook of Literacy and Technology: Volume II" is an
essential reference for researchers, professionals, and students in
reading/literacy education, literacy and technology, educational
technology, and related areas, and will serve well as a text for
upper-level and graduate courses on these topics.
