Literacies and Technologies: A Reader for the Contemporary Writer

by

This reader encourages students to explore the relationship between literacy and technology and the implications of that relationship on their culture and on their own lives at a time of rapid social and technological change. With an innovative perspective," Literacies and Technologies" addresses the topic of "technology" broadly, highlighting the important relationships between technology and literacy at a time when technology is profoundly changing how we read and write. Yagelski includes all aspects of technology as they pertain to writing-from the pencil to the printing press to Internet publishing-and offers a historical perspective on recent technological developments, especially related to the computer and the Internet. The analytic framework of this book encourages readers to view literacy as encompassing the ability to engage the world through written communication, a way of using writing and reading to reflect on, understand, and act in the world. Technology refers to tools and systems created for this purpose. Thus technology includes literacy itself, as literacy is a system that helps to construct, create and function in the world. Thought-provoking readings and exercises are included through out the book, providing opportunities for readers to improve their reflective and analytic literacies. For anyone interested in developing skills in writing, reading and critical thinking while exploring a new perspective on technology. Hide synopsis
