Media Literacy Reference
Theorists of multiliteracies, social semiotics, and the New Literacy Studies have drawn attention to the potential changing nature of writing and literacy in the context of networked communications. This article reports findings from a design-based research project in Year 4 classrooms (students aged 8.5-10 years) in a low socioeconomic status...
Media Literacy Reference
The teaching of digital literacies is regarded as an important facet of literacy teaching in the 21st century. With many literacy tests continuing to indicate that students’ levels of achievement tend to be differentiated along socioeconomic lines, it seems timely to consider the connections between home and school and how...
Media Literacy Reference
As words fly onto the computer screen, revolve, and dissolve, image, sound, and movement enter school classrooms in ‘‘new’’ and significant ways, ways that reconfigure the relationship of image and word. In this paper I discuss these ‘‘new’’ modal configurations and explore how they impact on students’ text production and...

Research confirms that young children engage in digital literacy practices in the home. While there is an emerging body of work that documents the diversity of these practices, there is little research that examines their acquisition in situ. This article uses conversation analysis to describe and explicate the social accomplishment...

The Australian Government has recently mandated the implementation of an Early Years Learning Framework in early childhood educational settings across the nation. The framework identifies an early childhood pedagogy that will provide children with the best start in life, and maximise their learning potential. This research study investigated how teachers'...

If students are to be equipped with skills necessary to meet the challenging and diverse demands of different forms of communication brought about by the introduction of new technologies, then a broader definition of literacy is required. A pedagogy of multiliteracies recognises that there are multiple modes of representation that...

While much has been written about the implications for ‘literacy’ of practices surrounding digital technologies, there has been surprisingly little research investigating new literacies in primary classrooms. This review examines the kinds of understandings that have been generated through studies of primary literacy and technology reported during the period 2000–2006....
Media Literacy Reference
Debates continue in public and in educational policy forums about the ‘basics’ of literacy while many have not recognized that these basics may never be the same again. Rapid changes in digital communication provide facilities for reading and writing to be combined with various and often quite complex aspects of...
Media Literacy Reference
For Simon, who is nine years old, reading and writing are obstacles rather than tools. However, when offered the opportunity to create digital stories, Simon becomes deeply engaged. He creates complex stories within different genres based on a variety of subjects. He both expresses and creates meaning through his digital...
Media Literacy Reference
This exploratory case study considered the opportunities for print literacy learning within multimodal ensembles that featured art, singing and digital media within the context of an intergenerational programme that brought together 13 kindergarten children (4 and 5 years) with seven elder companions. Study questions concerned how reading and writing were...
Media Literacy Reference
Through technology, the nature of writing has changed. This resource explores the ways in which even our youngest writers (preK-2) collaborate, co-construct and share digital texts combining drawing, writing, sound, and animation in ways we previously thought not possible.

With the revolution that has taken place in the functionality and uptake of portable networked ‘smart’ technologies, educators are looking to see what potential applications such technologies might have for school education. This article reports on a study on the use of portable personal computing devices in the early years...

This article examines the digital literacy practices that emerge when young children play together with digital apps on touchscreen devices. Children's collaborative composing with a digital puppetry app on a touchscreen—with many hands all busy dragging, resizing, and animating puppet characters, and many voices making sound effects, narrating, directing, and...
Media Literacy Reference
Given that many young children now enter their early years in education as competent and frequent users of digital technology, this paper examines how this experience influences children's perceptions of reading. Drawing from research conducted with 12 young children (aged 3–6) this paper reports on the ways in which these...
Media Literacy Reference
While many teachers and teacher educators agree that it is important to integrate new literacies and technologies into their teaching, educators are often perplexed about how to begin thinking about this task. Research reveals that educators use technologies for personal and communicative purposes, but teachers, for the most part, have...
Media Literacy Reference
This paper reports on a study investigating the use of digital texts in schools serving low and middle/upper socioeconomic communities. It draws on theoretical notions of rhizomes from the work of Deleuze and Guattari to explain the network of relations that are formed in classrooms, and that form the context...
Media Literacy Reference
This literature review provides an overview of research into technology and literacy for children aged 0-8 in educational settings from 2003-2009. The paper begins by exploring the different assumptions about the role of digital texts that underpin the studies considered, identifying three loose categories of studies which position technology as:...

The technological and social/cultural demands of the 21st century are reshaping communication requirements. Students not only need to be able to communicate effectively in oral and written language, but they also need to communicate effectively in multimodal ways--they need to become skilled in multiliteracies. This article explains the two factors...
Media Literacy Reference
Outlines the distinctive features of a small-scale literacy program offered to urban Aboriginal school students, which was premised on understandings of critical multi-literacies and explored through technological environments and texts. Argues for literacy programs to address critical practices that interrogate texts across multiple texts and modes. Presents a model of...
Media Literacy Reference
Digital communication has transformed literacy practices and assumed great importance in the functioning of workplace, recreational, and community contexts. This article reviews a decade of empirical work of the New Literacy Studies, identifying the shift toward research of digital literacy applications. The article engages with the central theoretical, methodological, and...
Media Literacy Reference
Given the changing nature of literacy, there is an urgent need to develop alternative ways of assessment in support of students' new literacy practices in the digital age. While emergent models of multimodal assessment are being developed in theoretical contexts, the study reported in this paper illustrates how multimodal theories...

This paper argues that a spatial perspective makes a valuable contribution to understanding the challenges and opportunities associated with integrating digital networked texts in educational contexts. It considers what we can learn by looking at how spaces are constructed within and around such texts in classrooms. In particular, it highlights...

This paper complements debates around use of new technologies and literacy in education by proposing a focus on “classroom-ness.” It highlights the significance of incidental, everyday and ephemeral practices associated with classroom technology-use. Using examples from a study of primary pupils’ interactions around digital texts, it argues that we must...
Media Literacy Reference
In the last 20 years the notion that images overpower words, and the belief that a decreasing lexical literacy among the young has been offset by an increasing visual literacy, has been repeated often enough to become accepted wisdom. Yet the precise nature of visual literacy among the young and...
