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: English Language Education Across Greater China
Edited By: Anwei Feng
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847693495
Series Title: Bilingual Education and Bilingualism
Description:

This volume is the first to offer a comprehensive and, at the same time,
in-depth examination of the spread of English and English language
education across Greater China. It consists of two parts.

Part 1 presents rich sociolinguistic data for easy comparisons between
mainland China, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao, while Part 2
explores in depth the phenomena inside mainland China to provide
contrastive analysis of English language use and education in economically
booming areas such as Shanghai and Guangdong and underdeveloped regions
like Xinjiang and Yunnan. With the descriptive, comparative and analytical
accounts of different territories ranging from nation-states to small
villages in remote areas, theories on the spread of English, second/third
language acquisition and identity are challenged with new concepts proposed
and established.
