Critical Literacy and Web 2.0: Exercising and Negotiating Power
McLeod, Julie; Vasinda, Sheri
Computers in the Schools, v25 n3-4 p259-274 Oct 2008
In this article, the authors describe Web 2.0 as tools that have increased the urgency for students' and teachers' critical literacy skills and have also participated in the implementation of critical literacy. The authors define and position both Web 2.0 and critical literacy. Further, students' and teachers' power dynamics within both critical literacy and Web 2.0 are explored. Examples of combining Web 2.0 and critical literacy illuminate the critical literacy principles in the context of schools.
