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."

This volume addresses bilingual education, the use of two (or more)
languages of instruction in education. Although bilingual education is
available in some form in most countries, it is frequently the subject of
political debate, especially where a bilingual program is set up to serve
migrant populations.

bilingual education *Discussion of research in the field since the 1920s
and the conclusions that can be drawn from it *Chapters on illustrative

This is one of ten volumes of the Encyclopedia of Language and Education
published by Springer. The Encyclopedia bears testimony to the dynamism and
evolution of the language and education field, as it confronts the
ever-burgeoning and irrepressible linguistic diversity and ongoing
pressures and expectations placed on education around the world.
