Electronic literacy in school and home: A look into the future

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This hypertext provides teachers and parents with a broad overview of electronic literacy in school and home, and includes links and references which can be pursued for specific practical detail. Definitions of texts, hypertexts, and hypermedia lead to a discussion of changes in the definitions of reading and literacy. Current developments in electronic literacy are reviewed in five main categories. Linking electronic literacy activities between home and school is considered. In this context, access and equity issues are reviewed and the practicalities of simpler alternative multimedia technologies explored, particularly with reference to international perspectives. The development of global electronic literacy from the home independent of the school is then discussed. Future problems, opportunities, and developments are foreshadowed; action implications for practitioners and researchers discussed; and issues of effectiveness emphasised.
