It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Design Literacies
Subtitle: Learning and Innovation in the Digital Age
Written By: Mary P. Sheridan
Jennifer Rowsell

Design Literacies: Learning and Innovation in the Digital Age explores new
ways of meaning making by examining the practices, stories, and products of
new and digital media producers with the goal of understanding the logic of
marketplace production.

Based on interviews with thirty new media and digital technology producers,
including designers of video games, community activists and marketers of
digital technologies, Design Literacies looks at the shared patterns and
common themes and offers a window into contemporary out-of-school
practices, a language to describe these practices and a pedagogy that
better meets students’ needs in this new media and digital age.

With a foreword by Gunther Kress and an afterword by James Gee, Design
Literacies: Learning and Innovation in the Digital Age will be of interest
to postgraduate and graduate students of applied linguistics and education.
