Centre for the Study of New Literacies

The Centre for the Study of New Literacies was launched today, based at the School of Education at Sheffield University. "The Centre comes from the perspective that literacy is a social practice and that literacy practices are embedded within everyday life." It is led by Dr Kate Pahl and Dr Julia Davies. The event, which included talks by Professor Anne Haas Dyson and Angela Thomas, also launched the new book:
Davies, J. and Merchant, G. (2009) Web 2.0 for schools. Peter Lang Publishing. ISBN 978-1-4331-0263-9
There is a ning group just starting out for the Centre
