Family electronic literacy: Part 2 – Home-school links through computers

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    In a previous article (part one), “parental involvement in children’s reading”, its development into the concept of “family literacy”, and the emerging notion of “electronic literacy” were discussed. The use of the relatively “low-tech” approach of audiotaped books was described in this context. In part two, a more “high-tech” approach to Family Electronic Literacy through computers and the Internet is considered. The intention is to offer a broad overview, a more detailed description of one specific practical example, and references which can be pursued by interested readers. Future developments are foreshadowed and action implications for practitioners and researchers are discussed. A list of resource locations is appended.
