Changing Technologies, Changing Literacy Communities?
Murray, Denise E.
Language Learning & Technology, v4 n2 p43-58 Sep 2000
Technological revolutions entail rapid and far-reaching social change that is the result of the introduction of a major new technology. Changes in the technologies of literacy affect literacy practices and communities. Scholars suggest computers will result in a different social consciousness of what literacy is and how it functions in individuals and society. This view does not reflect the realities of history.
