Summary

This authoritative landmark text examines the highly topical and important issue of ICT in literacy learning. Its distinctive focus on providing a systematic review of research in the field gives the reader an essential, comprehensive overview.

As governments worldwide continue to invest heavily in ICT provisions in educational institutions, this book addresses the need to gather and synthesise evidence about the impact of ICT on literacy learning.

An expert team of writers draw upon two recent reports by the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development, which highlighted the considerable differences between nations in the access and use of ICT, to take a discursive and expansive look at the subject.

Within its wide range and scope, chapters cover areas on:

* the history of literacy and ICT
* evidence for the effectiveness of ICT on literacy learning
* the impact of networked ICT on literacy learning
* the relationship between verbal and visual literacies.

This book will be an invaluable and informative read with international resonance for student teachers, teachers, academics and researchers worldwide.
