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."

Description:

Studies in Applied Linguistis and Language Learning brings together new and
original studies in the area of critical applied linguistics, language
policy and planning, and language learning and teaching. The book, divided
into three sections, first offers critical views on various aspects of
language in society, ranging from the construction of national identity,
language and justice, racial and identity issues in the ELT industry, to
language in business discourse. It then reports on language policy in the
school curriculum, language learning in tertiary education, and Aboriginal
languages policy. In the third section, it addresses issues in language
learning and teaching, such as the role of parents in literacy learning,
multiple script literacy, and language learning and maintenance strategies.
