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: Intercultural Journeys
Written By: Jane Jackson
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=279780
Series Title: Language and Globalization
Description:

Intercultural Journeys: From Study to Residence Abroad explores the language
and (inter)cultural learning of second language students before, during, and after
a short-term sojourn in the host culture. Drawing on current theories of
intercultural (communicative)/ global competences and the Intercultural
Development Inventory (IDI), it examines the students' developmental
trajectories. The findings raise awareness of the multifarious internal and
external factors that can influence sojourn outcomes. Linking theory with the
actual experience of sojourners, the author suggests innovative ways to
enhance language and intercultural learning both at home and abroad. While the
book examines the linguistic, intercultural, and identity development of Chinese
sojourners, elements of their stories reach across ethnic, linguistic, and
geographic lines and resonate with L2 learners in other parts of the world. The
book provides a valuable reference for international educators, second language
specialists, interculturalists, study abroad professionals, adult educators, and
sojourners.
