Handbook of Literacy and Technology: Transformations in a Post-Typographic World


"The major shift going on today in the technologies of reading and writing raises important questions about conventional conceptions of literacy and its role in education, society, and culture. To what extent and in what ways is literacy being transformed by new technologies? This central question is addressed in this volume from diverse, multidisciplinary perspectives. The contributors met as a group to discuss drafts of their chapters at a one-day meeting convened and sponsored by the National Reading Research Center; they also read each others' chapters prior to this gathering. This meeting was followed by a two-day conference attended by approximately 180 researchers, educators, and policymakers who responded to an open invitation to present papers and to attend sessions focusing on the six major themes of this volume. Contributors then revised their chapters based on interactions with fellow contributors, conference participants, and the volume's editors."
