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: Socio-Cultural Values in the Development of Intercultural Communication Competence
Written By: Christopher Brighton
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?262960
Series Title: Interfaces
Description:

How socio-cultural factors influence the development of Intercultural Communication Competence is an essential part of developing the skills to work and interact with a rapidly globalizing world. Building upon the work of Edward Hall, Geert Hofstede and Stella Ting-Toomey, this book explores the role in which experience, family and other social aspects play in creating an individual’s ICC skills. In this work, a model of six ICC skills allows for the examination of the impact of Polish national culture on socio-cultural values of Polish students in the three mutually dependent dimensions of politics, education and family. The empirical data present clear conclusions and indications of how specific factors are relevant or irrelevant in helping to construct ICC. These findings bear implications for trainers and researchers in approaching the issue of developing intercultural competences.

Contents: Intercultural Communication Competence – Evaluating ICC – Experience and Family Role in ICC Development – Study Abroad and Foreign Work Experience – Polish Learners of English.
