Integrating Virtual and Traditional Learning in 6-12 Classrooms
introduces a model of "layered literacies" as a framework for
describing and illustrating how students digital experiences can
inform educational methods. Through the lens of layered literacies,
educators can envision opportunities to draw upon adolescents
out-of-school interests and activities to meaningfully integrate
digital practices within academic contexts. Such an approach
facilitates innovative teaching, inspired learning, and successful
pedagogy, and it thoughtfully highlights the role of technology
within mandated standards-based instruction in public schools.
Combining foundational and contemporary theories, supported by data
from multiple studies of adolescent learning, and honoring teachers
and students experiences and resources, this text" "helps educators
reconceptualize the ways students learn through and with digital
texts and negotiate the connection between online and offline
spaces. A companion website extends the discussion onto the screen,
engaging readers in an intertextual approach to learning that
complements the concept of layering literacies across disciplines.
With a foreword by Jennifer Rowsell and an afterword by Bill Cope
and Mary Kalantzis, it will be of interest to experienced educators
and administrators, as well as postgraduate, graduate, and
undergraduate students of education."
