Title: Silicon Literacies
Subtitle: Communication, Innovation and Education in the Electronic Age
Edited By: Ilana Snyder
Series Title: Literacies
Description:

Written by leading international scholars from a range of disciplines, Silicon Literacies examine the implications of electronic text. From role-playing in computer games to eBay to Internet degree programs, this book reveals that being "computer-literate" entails an understanding of how different modalities combine to create meaning. The contributors of this book recognize that in the digital age reading and writing are only a part of what it means to be literate. This book facilitates an understanding of the ways in which new technology influences, shapes and even transforms the concept of literacy.
