Standpoints: Researching and Teaching English in the Digital Dimension
Kirkland, David E.
Research in the Teaching of English, v44 n1 p8-22 Aug 2009
David E. Kirkland argues that our understanding of literate practice in relation to space needs to be radically reworked to account for new digital dimensions that are dispersed, discontinuous, and yet deeply woven into everyday and institutional worlds. His account highlights the way these digital spaces pepper the official landscape of schooling, fracturing the dominance of official discourse as students' diverse linguistic, literate, and semiotic practices infuse this complex composite space. (Contains 3 figures.)
