Articulating and Contextualizing Multiple Literacies in an Urban Setting
Voithofer, Rick; Winterwood, Fawn
Urban Education, v45 n5 p687-707 Sep 2010
This study uses articulation theory to frame how social actors and institutions in an urban community in Columbus, Ohio, form linkages and understandings about computer and information literacies. Using interviews with 33 key educators (e.g., principals, computer literacy teachers, library media specialists, district integration specialists), public librarians, and directors from local recreation and community centers, the results show not only how members of this community construct computer and information literacies but also how the participants support these literacies with available resources. Different structural and cultural barriers and opportunities are identified that impact how computer and information literacies are articulated within this community. (Contains 1 table and 1 note.)
