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: Literacy: A Redefinition
Written By: Anthony Baratta
Nancy Ellsworth
Carolyn Hedley
Description:

The concepts of the past, centered on traditional ways of learning to read and write, no longer suffice in a society that requires higher level skills. This volume offers a revitalized perspective of literacy, focusing on the forms that literacy will take in the future, the influence of changing technologies and multimedia on curriculum and instructional practices, and on effective learning environments.
