Reviews of the first edition

"A good book opens a window onto new vistas; an excellent one, on the other hand, pulls readers through the opening and beyond, inviting critical dialogue at every turn. New Literacies belongs in the excellent category." Donna Alvermann, University of Georgia, USA

“Superb … compels us as educators to connect our school practices with the literacy practices young people successfully employ outside school” Kathy Hall, Leeds Metropolitan University

“Contains the best explanation to date of just what ‘new’ means in new literacies” David O’Brien, University of Minnesota and Eurydice Bouchereau Bauer, University of Illinois
