  10. Keepin’ It Real: Integrating New Literacies with Effective Classroom Practice

    It can be a challenge for teachers to weave the new literacies into an over-crowded curriculum. Keepin' It Real looks at these new literacies from the perspective of the needs of a classroom teacher. It illustrates how to use the 'new' literacies to strengthen and support the 'old' ones. It argues that the new is not possible without the old, and recognises the interdependence of the literacies in the 21st century. Based on the deep belief that, in order to proficiently use technology, one must be skilled at reading and writing, this book challenges students to consider the new literacies as a learning experience for both teacher and student. It argues that, when we include our students in making decisions, they take responsibility for their learning and become more independent learners.
