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: Teaching World Languages for Social Justice
Subtitle: A Sourcebook of Principles and Practices
Written By: Terry A. Osborn
Description:

"Teaching World Languages for Social Justice: A Sourcebook of Principles
and Practices" offers principles based on theory, and innovative concepts,
approaches, and practices illustrated through concrete examples, for
promoting social justice and developing a critical praxis in foreign
language classrooms in the U.S. and in wider world language communities.
For educators seeking to translate these ideals into classroom practice in
an environment dominated by the current standards movement and
accountability measures, the critical insights on language education
offered in this text will be widely welcomed.

The text is designed as a sourcebook for translating theory into practice.
Each chapter includes the theoretical base, guidelines for practice,
discussion of the relationship to existing practices in the world language
classroom, suggestions for activity development (which can be integrated
into a professional portfolio), illustrative examples, questions for
reflection, and additional suggested readings.

"Teaching World Languages for Social Justice" is a primary or supplementary
text for second and foreign language teaching methods courses and is
equally appropriate for graduate courses in language education or
educational studies.
