The Game of Literacy: The Meaning of "Play" in Computer-Mediated Communication.
Daisley, Margaret
Computers and Composition, v11 n2 p107-19 1994
Uses classroom excerpts to examine issues of "playfulness" and "gaming" in computer-mediated communication (CMC). Offers theories and historical constructions of literacy and play for instructors to conceptualize the construction of boundaries between productive and nonproductive language behaviors in CMC. Argues that CMC's empowering capabilities can be realized only when students participate in creating "the rules of the game." (RS)
