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: Language and Learning in Multilingual Classrooms
Subtitle: A Practical Approach
Written By: Elizabeth Coelho
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847697196
Series Title: Parents' and Teachers' Guides
Description:

This book is a research-based practical guide for educators who work with
students whose linguistic and cultural background is different from their own.
Illustrated with many practical examples of classroom activities, projects, and
teaching strategies, the book is also an introduction to immigrant education for
school administrators and educational planners in communities or regions that
are in the process of developing plans and programs for newcomer students.
Although the focus is on first-generation immigrant children, many of the
recommended approaches and instructional strategies described in this book
can be used or adapted for use with second-generation children and historical
linguistic and cultural minorities, such as children from Aboriginal communities
in North America or children of Roma background in Europe.
