New literacies: changing knowledge and classroom learning
"Lankshear and Knobel's New Literacies: Changing Knowledge and Classroom Learning is a savvy and principled analysis of emerging socio-cultural conditions of digitization, the best take to date on education, Post-Lyotard." - Suzanne de Castell, Professor, Literacy and New Media Studies, Simon Fraser University "An intriguing book which argues why the use of new media is transforming ways of knowing and making meaning in the digital age. Essential reading for anyone who cares about literacy education." - Associate Professor Ilana Snyder, Monash University "A good book opens a window onto new vistas; an excellent one, on the other hand, pulls readers through the opening and beyond, inviting critical dialogue at every turn. New Literacies belongs in the excellent catagory." - Donna Alvermann, University of GeorgiaLiteracy education continues to be dominated by a mindset that has passed its use-by date. Education has failed to take account of how much the world has changed during the information technology revolution. It proceeds as though the world is the same as before - just somewhat more technologised. This is the hallmark of an 'outsider' mindset. In fact, qualitatively new literacies and new kinds of knowledge associated with digitally saturated social practices abound. 'Insiders' understand this, 'outsiders' do not. Yet 'outsider' perspectives still dominate educational directions. Meanwhile, student 'insiders' endure learning experiences that mystify, bemuse, alienate and miseducate them. This book describes new social practices and new literacies, along with kinds of knowledge associated with them. It shows what is at stake between 'outsider' and 'insider' mindsets, argues that education requires a shift in mindset, and suggests how and where pursuit of progressive change might begin.
