Warschauer, M. (1999). Electronic Literacies:
Language, Culture, and Power in Online Education. Mahwah, NJ:
Lawrence Erlbaum Associates.
This book addresses the challenges and contradictions that arise as
culturally and linguistically diverse learners engage in new language
and literacy practices in online environments. It documents the role
of the Internet and other new digital technologies in the development
of language and literacy. Warschauer looks at how the nature of reading
and writing is changing, and how those changes are being addressed
in the classroom. His focus is on the experiences of culturally and
linguistically diverse learners who are at special risk of being marginalized
from the information society.
