New Frontiers in Technological Literacy: Breaking with the Past

New Frontiers in Technological Literacy: Breaking with the Past Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New Frontiers in Technological Literacy examines new aspects of how students, citizens, and teachers become technologically literate and the aspects of their lives that are mediated by technological literacy. Scholars from four continents consider how technological literacy is shaped by everything from gender to age to country of origin and shapes our relationships to democracy, sustainability, medicine, education, philosophy, and our workplaces. With incisive and forward-looking chapters on topics ranging from scientific and genetic literacy to digital democracy, New Frontiers in Technological Literacy joins Defining Technological Literacy in uncovering how technological literacy affects education, work, and life in the modern world.

Synopsis:

New Frontiers in Technological Literacy attempts to rethink the concept of technological literacy in a modern context, not only in terms of a subject area taught in schools, but also as an important general concept that all citizens should engage with. As this book will illustrate, the concept of technological literacy has no universally agreed definition. Multiple perspectives from around the world are offered on the concept of technological literacy as related to democracy, sustainability, education, gender, medicine, work, youth and philosophy.
