Literacy education in the age of new media

chapter
posted on 2013-03-05, 00:00 authored by B Green, Catherine BeavisCatherine Beavis
This chapter focus on the question of literacy education itself-on how this is to be understood in the current and emerging age, how it is changing, and what it is for. It also engages the other key question here, that of what constitutes 'new media,' or rather, as Levinson puts it, 'new new media'-media forms emerging on the scene more or less constantly, and each time ever newer. Increasingly, literacy guidelines in many parts of the world call on teachers to incorporate attention to multimodal and electronic texts into their classrooms and curriculum. Curriculum guidelines addressing the 'new literacies' are structured around an expanded view of literacy that recognizes the changing and dynamic nature of text and textual forms, and call on research into the textual, communicative and cultural practices of young people as they engage with online popular culture and the digital world.
