Product description


'Finally, a definitive user’s guide for the fast changing world of digital media and digital literacies. Understanding Digital Literacies: A practical introduction is lucid, entertaining, spot on, and, while practical indeed, is wholly a theoretically sophisticated and empirically trustworthy guide.'James Paul Gee, Arizona State University, USA

'Understanding Digital Literacies is an excellent introduction to this newly emerging field, providing a comprehensive guide to the concepts needed to understand the area. Enthusiastically written, the book addresses the reader directly and is clearly illustrated with detailed case studies.'David Barton, Lancaster University, UK

'This highly readable and incisively argued volume represents a milestone contribution to better understanding communication in late modernity. The authors provide theoretically astute and empirically rich coverage of digital literacies in a wide array of new media contexts. The text is rich with examples, provides a variety of exercises and project types for students, and includes comprehensive suggestions for additional reading and investigation. This book is an invaluable resource for students and teachers engaged in literacy studies, applied linguistics, digital cultures research, and exploration of new media as they relate to workplaces, education, and social life.'Steven L. Thorne, Portland State University, USA and University of Groningen, the Netherlands

'Impressively broad in the information that it provides while not oversimplifying the complex issues covered... A valuable contribution to advanced undergraduate or graduate courses that provide a multidisciplinary perspective on this complex and widely researched issue.' - LINGUIST List
