Virtual Literacies free pdf

This book provides an evaluation and appreciation of the learning, teaching and instruction that can occur in digital environments. Mass media accounts of digital culture are invariably predicated on a technologically determinist vision, on the one hand promoting a utopian view of the future while on the other fueling moral panic by emphasizing views of alienation and danger in life online. In this book, children, young people and those who work with them are revealed as active agents with possibilities to navigate new paths.
