With contributions from leading scholars, this compelling volume offers fresh insights into literacy teaching and learning-and the changing nature of literacy itself-in today's K-12 classrooms.
The focus is on varied technologies and literacies such as social networking sites, text messaging, and online communities.
Cutting-edge approaches to integrating technology into traditional, print-centered reading and writing instruction are described.
Also discussed are ways to teach the new skills and strategies that students need to engage effectively with digital texts.
The book is unique in examining new literacies through multiple theoretical lenses, including behavioral, semiotic, cognitive, sociocultural, critical, and feminist perspectives.
