Summary The essays in this volume provide an international perspective on persistent and emerging questions related to the use of online technologies for teaching and learning. They demonstrate that online literacy practices can be understood only when they are examined within their social, political, economic, cultural, and historical contexts.
Notes "This book emerged from a symposium held at the International Literacy Conference in Cape Town, November, 2001"
