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."

Abstract: In the early 1990s Jostein Gaarders' book 'Sophie's World' became a best-selling book mostly because Gaarder had succeeded in imparting cultural studies such as Philosophy and its history to children and young adults in a readily comprehensible way. This paper suggests the implementation of Philosophy and its history in the German (as a Foreign Language) classroom with Dutch and French native speakers in Belgium using the German translation of 'Sophie's World' and a wide variety of supplementary teaching material (movie, audio books, CDs, DVD, encyclopedia, games, etc.)
