ICT and Literacy: Information and Communications Technology, Media, Reading, and Writing
Nikki Gamble, Nick Easingwood
A&C Black, Mar 1, 2001 - Education - 136 pages
What does literacy mean in the 21st century? How can information and communications technology (ICT) contribute to the development of traditional literacy? And how do our traditional views of literacy need to change in response to ICT? ICT and literacy are two of the most urgent concerns for any modern educator, and in order to understand either of these phenomena adequately, one must understand them in relation to each other. ICT and Literacy provides the answers. The authors examine literacy in relation to a wide range of technology and media, especially books, video editing, interactive multimedia, and on-line materials. With a focus on library provision as well as teaching, the authors emphasize the importance of "joined-up thinking" on the part of educators.
