No abstract available
It’s not unusual for a multiliteracies approach to literacy teaching to be equated with the literacies associated with computers and other information communication technologies. Although literacy educators need to take account of these emerging technoliteracies, a multiliteracies approach should encompass much more than that. What can sometimes be forgotten are the diverse social, cultural and literate practices of homes and communities – the literacy backgrounds that seem to often play a determining role in whether children are successful or not in school settings.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
