"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."
In this volume an international roster of scholars offer theoretical perspectives, research reviews and empirical studies on teaching, learning and language development in immersion education. Editors clearly define the term "immersion" and bring together research from three distinct branches, including foreign language ("one-way"), bilingual ("two-way") and indigenous immersion programs. This collection aims to facilitate cross-context dialogue and knowledge exchange.
