The book is structured to provide teachers, parents, and other interested adults with ideas, issues, trends, and practical techniques for dealing with media and literacy. It sets out to examine the “new literacies” in today’s technology-intensive world. The authors attempt to answer the question of what it will mean to be literate in the twenty-first century. This newly updated and revised edition continues to follow a pattern designed to inform and challenge current educational practices. It presents ideas, concepts, and practical methods for improving learning about and with the whole range of information technologies. Chapter topics include multiple literacies, media production in a digital world, communicating in the future, numeracy, scientific literacy, aesthetic literacy, technological literacies, and networking literacy. Alternative blueprints are suggested for moving schools beyond a stale reproduction of past efforts to more fully develop literacy skills and higher mental life. The authors provide a practical base of media-related activities that can extend the literacy interests of children and young adults.
