Teachers and Technoliteracy: Managing literacy, technology and learning in schools
'Immensely enjoyable, and essential reading for all educators. It addresses in a comprehensive way how we might enhance literacy and subject-based education using information and communications technologies.'
Ron Lake, Principal, Bendigo Senior Secondary College, Victoria
'...a critical and much needed theoretical text for educators who want to know why they are using technology...Its great strength is its detailed account of how technology is shaping the kinds of communication literacies which will inform life in the future.'
Mary Mason, Associate Principal: Learning Communities, Wesley College, Melbourne
'This isn't reading for techno-nerds only, but for all teachers coming to grips with new kinds of students and new kinds of technologies.'
Allan Luke, Professor, Graduate School of Education, University of Queensland
Teachers and Technoliteracy examines the use of technology in education. Drawing on detailed case studies the authors show how schools in different settings can establish sustainable and appropriate technology infrastructure. They also show how to develop teaching practices which not only enhance technology skills, but a range of literacy skills as well. Analysis of education technology policy reveals how a working understanding of policy is crucial to making the right technology decisions in schools.
The authors argue that educational principles should not be sacrificed to the 'technological dance', nor to the escalating corporatisation of education with which new technology is so closely associated. Rather, they demonstrate how technology can be put to the service of education, and not only make it more effective, but enrich it as well.
Teachers and Technoliteracy is a valuable professional reference for school principals and for teachers working with technology. It is also an excellent student text for university courses on computers and education.
