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: Disinventing & Reconstituting Languages
Edited By: Sinfree Makoni
Alastair Pennycook
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/multi/display.asp?isb=1853599239
Series Title: Bilingual education & Bilingualism
Description:

This book questions assumptions about the nature of language. Looking at
diverse contexts from sign languages in Indonesia to literacy practices in
Brazil, the authors argue that unless we change and reconstitute the ways
in which languages are taught and conceptualized, language studies will not
be able to improve the social welfare of language users.
