Features of the book include: An assortment of real-life examples to illustrate each topic, drawn from contexts relevant to students from around the world; A variety of discussion questions and mini-ethnographic research projects involving student exploration of various patterns of media and communication in peer group scenarios Suggestions for further reading and reviews of key terms and concepts covered in every chapter A companion website providing links to useful websites and blogs, interactive exercises, stories about new literacies and interviews with researchers in the field This book will provide a key resource for undergraduate and graduate students studying courses in new media and digital literacies.
