Summary

In the context of moral panics surrounding social media, the internet and video games and concerns over how digital media are affecting the young and their ability to learn and communicate effectively, leading educationalists James Paul Gee and Elisabeth Hayes, put forward arguments for how digital media is transforming language ,literacy and education and how essential it is to embrace these new forms of communication.The authors examine how each new form of communication results in similar moral panics and explore how new forms of learning are at the heart of digital media, and the relationship between digital media and language and literacy.This is both essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate/graduate students in language, linguistics, communication studies and education and a key contribution to the "New Literacy studies" socio-cultural approach to language and literacy.
