Teaching Literacy/ies with Mobile Devices

Part of the New Language Learning and Teaching Environments book series (NLLTE)

But literacy long ago fractured into a plural concept. Well before the digital era, we started to hear about visual literacy, media literacy and information literacy. With the advent of digital technologies, these literacies have taken on added importance and new ones have begun to emerge. But it’s unsettled terrain. Both technologies and literacies are continuing to shift in mutually constitutive ways.
