An examination of literacy in relation to a wide range of new technology and media, especially talking books, email, video dating, interactive multimedia and on-line materials. In each case, the writers draw on state-of-the-art research to explain the implications for educational practice and policy. In the process, they show the need for "joined-up" thinking on the part of all those who provide education, guidance and resources for young people: a key feature of the book is its explanation of the key role of library provision as well as teaching.
