Teachers and technoliteracy : managing literacy, technology and learning in schools by Colin Lankshear( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and Japanese and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Teachers and Technoliteracy examines the use of technology in education. Drawing on detailed case studies, the authors show how schools in different settings can establish sustainable and appropriate technology infrastructure. They also show how to develop teaching practices which not only enhance technology skills but a range of literacy skills as well. Analysis of education technology policy reveals how a working understanding of policy is crucial to making the right technology decisions in schools." "Teachers and Technoliteracy is a valuable professional reference for school principals and for teachers working with technology. It is also an excellent student text for university courses on computers and education."--Jacket
Literacy, schooling and revolution by Colin Lankshear( Book )

13 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Living like a Corinthian." In ancient Greece this phrase was an insult cast at vagrants, drunkards and sexual deviates. The city of Corinth was infamous as a center for intellectual pride and moral laxity. Any church planted there was bound to have problems. The Corinthian church was no exception. Snobbishness, factionalism, insensitivity to other believers, doctrinal looseness and overexuberance all flourished in the Corinthian church. When the apostle Paul heard about the difficulties, he was grieved because he had founded the church and felt closely tied to it. He therefore wrote an intense and pointed letter. In this fresh and gripping exposition of 1 Corinthians, David Prior plainly shows the relevance of Paul's letter for our times. His hope is that all churches may better live out the lordship of Christ in today's cosmopolitan world. - Back cover

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The study of new literacies is quickly emerging as a major research field. This book "samples" work in the broad area of new literacies research along two dimensions. First, it samples some typical examples of new literacies - video gaming, fan fiction writing, weblogging, role play gaming, using websites to participate in affinity practices, memes, and other social activities involving mobile technologies. Second, the studies collectively sample from a wide range of approaches potentially available for researching and studying new literacies from a sociocultural perspective. Readers will come away with a rich sense of what new literacies are, and a generous appreciation of how they are being researched."--Jacket

A new literacies reader : educational perspectives( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A New Literacies Reader is an introduction to social and cultural studies of new literacies from the perspectives of educators, education researchers and learners. It focuses on how participating in social practices of new literacies can be seen and understood in terms of people becoming insiders to ways of "doing" and "being" that are today considered desirable or worthwhile, and how this can usefully inform how we think about formal schooling and learning. The book's 18 chapters cover a variety of topics, including: studies of new literacies within classroom contexts, semi-formal learning spaces beyond the classroom, teacher learning and professional development, spaces of popular cultural affinities, practices viewed from different research perspectives The diverse topics addressed range from multimodal pedagogies, remix, performance poetry, and digital storytelling to issues associated with wireless environments, assessment, identity, and teachers' ways of taking up new technologies. Chapters explore how young people participate and collaborate within the spaces of popular cultural interests and the various approaches to researching gaming. The book speaks to teachers and teacher educators, education administrators, curriculum developers, education policy makers, professional development specialists, postgraduate research students, and other literacy and new media researchers. A New Literacies Reader is an essential volume for undergraduates, grad students, and faculty interested in refining their knowledge of the vast new horizons created by the world of new literacies

Researching new literacies : design, theory, and data in sociocultural investigation by Michele Knobel( Book )

4 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an expansive guide for designing and conducting robust qualitative research across a diverse range of purposes concerned with understanding new literacies in theory and in practice. It is based on the idea that one of the best ways of learning how to do good research is by closely following the approaches taken by excellent researchers. This volume brings together a group of internationally reputed qualitative researchers who have investigated new literacies from a sociocultural perspective. These contributors offer "under the hood" accounts of how they have adapted existing research approaches and, where appropriate, developed new ones to frame their research theoretically and conceptually, collected and analyzed their data, and discussed their analytic results in order to achieve their research purposes. Each chapter, based on a substantial and successful study undertaken by the researchers, addresses the research process from one or more of the following emphases: theory and design, data collection, and data analysis and interpretation. Core elements discussed in each chapter include research purposes and questions; theoretical and conceptual framing; data collection and analysis; research findings and implications; and limitations, glitches, and difficulties experienced in the research process. --
