Title: Digital Genres, New Literacies and Autonomy in Language Learning
Edited By: MaríaJoséLuzón
MariaNoeliaRuiz-Madrid
MaríaLuisaVillanueva
Description:

The exponential growth in the amount and complexity of information
transmitted and shared on the Internet and the capabilities afforded by new
information technologies result in the continuous emergence of new genres
and new literacy practices that call for new models of genre analysis and
new approaches to teaching literacy and language, where language learning
autonomy has to take centre stage. Any pedagogical approach which seeks to
develop autonomy in online language learning should also be concerned with
the development of new literacies, with raising an awareness of digital
texts and with the cognitive processes learners engage in when constructing
meaning in hypertext.

The purpose of this volume is to lay the foundations for an approach to
online language learning which draws on the analysis of digital texts and
of the practices and strategies involved in using such texts. With this aim
in mind, this book incorporates and draws relations between research on
digital genres, autonomy, electronic literacies and language learning
tasks, combining theoretical reflections with pedagogical research.

The chapters in this volume, written by researchers from different academic
traditions, report research concerning digital genres, new literacy skills
and the design of webtasks for effective language learning. These chapters
will be useful resources for researchers and doctoral students interested
in the development of autonomous language learning in digital environments.
