What Research Has to Say About Reading Instruction
The New Literacies: Research on Reading Instruction With the Internet
Donald J. Leu, Jr.
The author defines new literacies as including “the skills, strategies, and insights necessary to successfully exploit the rapidly changing information and communication technologies that continuously emerge in our world.” As public policy initiatives worldwide focus on how education can prepare citizens to meet the challenges of a competitive global economy, information and communication technologies are being infused into curricula at all levels. This chapter discusses the research on efficacy of technology in education and the implications for teacher education and staff development, and advocates embracing change in the interest of preparing children for their futures.
