Whose community? Which knowledge? A critical (hyperliteracies) take on information literate school communities

Kapitzke, Cushla (2005) Whose community? Which knowledge? A critical (hyperliteracies) take on information literate school communities. In Henri, James & Asselin, Marlene (Eds.) The information literate school community 2: Issues of leadership. Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga, NSW, pp. 27-38.


Using a critical literacy curriculum from an Australian state educational system, this chapter problematizes the notion of an "information literate school community" and advocates instead for a hyperliteracy pedagogy. The argument is grounded and illustrated in a critical textual analysis of a National Geographic Online Kids magazine.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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.
