Riguardo questo articolo

The Internet, World Wide Web, and digital devices have fundamentally changed the way people communicate, affecting everything from business, to school, to family, to religion, to democracy. This textbook takes a well-rounded view of the evolution from media literacy to digital literacy to help students better understand the digitally filtered world in which they live. The text explores digital literacy through three lenses: ? Historical: reviews snapshots of time and space to delineate how things were in order to lend context to how they are; ? Cultural: explores how values and ideals are constructed and conveyed within a given cultural context ? how humans absorb and share the informal rules and norms that make up a society; ? Critical: illuminates how social changes ? particularly rapid ones ? can put certain people at a disadvantage. All three angles are helpful for better understanding the myriad ways in which our identities and relationships are being altered by technology, and what it means to be a citizen in a society that has become individualized and is in constant flux. Written in a conversational and approachable style, the text is easy to navigate, with short chapters, short paragraphs, and bullet points. Comics and images illustrate complex topics and add visual interest. The text is ideal for media literacy, digital information literacy, and technology courses that seek to integrate human impact into the mix. It is also a good starting point for anyone wanting to know more about the impact of communication technologies on our lives. Codice inventario libreria 312821

Riassunto:

The Internet, World Wide Web, and digital devices have fundamentally changed the way people communicate, affecting everything from business, to school, to family, to religion, to democracy. This textbook takes a well-rounded view of the evolution from media literacy to digital literacy to help students better understand the digitally filtered world in which they live.
The text explores digital literacy through three lenses:
· Historical: reviews snapshots of time and space to delineate how things were in order to lend context to how they are;
· Cultural: explores how values and ideals are constructed and conveyed within a given cultural context – how humans absorb and share the informal rules and norms that make up a society;
· Critical: illuminates how social changes – particularly rapid ones – can put certain people at a disadvantage.
All three angles are helpful for better understanding the myriad ways in which our identities and relationships are being altered by technology, and what it means to be a citizen in a society that has become individualized and is in constant flux.
Written in a conversational and approachable style, the text is easy to navigate, with short chapters, short paragraphs, and bullet points. Comics and images illustrate complex topics and add visual interest.
The text is ideal for media literacy, digital information literacy, and technology courses that seek to integrate human impact into the mix. It is also a good starting point for anyone wanting to know more about the impact of communication technologies on our lives.

Descrizione libreria

The Peter Lang publishing group consists of several editing companies which have favoured contacts with worldwide authors. Mr Peter Lang, who founded the publishing group, comes from a family of editors and renowned Swiss booksellers. He learned the technical sides of publishing in his father¿s firm and associated them to his personal dynamism and inventiveness in order to create his various companies. In 1970, he created Peter Lang GmbH in Frankfort-am-Main and, thanks to its representatives in numerous German and Austrian cities and their local facilities, managed to create services highly satisfactory to our authors. Peter Lang AG in Bern became the central company in 1977 and used to (and still does) centralise many activities, like advertising, selling and the shipping of books. The specialised academic publications, which are not printed in great numbers, demand some very efficient and specific marketing, as well as precisely targeted advertising throughout the world and an extremely well-documented organisation. Peter Lang Publishing, Inc. in New York was created in 1982; Peter Lang AG in Oxford was founded in 1996; and P.I.E.-Peter Lang was opened in Brussels in 1999. --- Die Unternehmensgruppe Peter Lang besteht aus mehreren lokalen Verlagen, die weltweit den direkten und intensiven Kontakt mit den Autoren pflegen. Peter Lang, der Gründer der Verlagsgruppe, entstammte einer renommierten Schweizer Buchhändler- und Verlegerfamilie. Sein verlegerisches Fachwissen erwarb er im Geschäft seines Vaters und nutzte es mit viel Eigeninitiative und Dynamik zum Aufbau seiner Verlage. 1970 gründete er die Peter Lang GmbH in Frankfurt am Main mit zahlreichen Kontakt- und Beratungsstellen in Deutschland und Österreich. 1977 folgte die Peter Lang AG Bern, die als Hauptsitz die Dienstleistungen für die ganze Verlagsgruppe erbringt. Dazu gehört, dass sie z. B. für zentrale Aufgaben wie Werbung und Vertrieb verantwortlich ist. Die hoch spezialisierten wissenschaftlichen Publikationen in Kleinauflagen der ganzen Verlagsgruppe erfordern ein effizientes Marketing, eine weltweit ausgerichtete Werbung und ein logistisch gut ausgebautes Vertriebsnetz. 1982 wurde die Peter Lang Publishing, Inc. in New York gegründet. 1996 folgte der Auf- und Ausbau der englischen Niederlassung Peter Lang AG in Oxford und 1999 die Gründung der P.I.E.-Peter Lang in Brussels. --- Le groupe éditorial PETER LANG est constitué de plusieurs maisons d¿édition, qui entretiennent localement des contacts privilégiés avec les auteurs du monde entier. M. Peter Lang, fondateur du groupe éditorial, est issu d¿une famille d¿éditeurs et de libraires suisses renommés. Il acquiert les connaissances techniques du métier d¿éditeur dans la société de son père et les associe à son dynamisme et son esprit d¿initiative, pour bâtir ses différentes maisons d'édition. En 1970, Il fonde PETER LANG GmbH à Francfort-sur-le-Main qui, grâce à ses représentants dans de nombreuses villes d¿Allemagne et d¿Autriche, offre des services de proximité très appréciés de nos auteurs. PETER LANG AG Berne devient en 1977 la maison-mère du groupe éditorial, et centralise à ce titre un grand nombre de services, comme par exemple la publicité, la vente et l¿expédition des ouvrages. Les publications scientifiques spécialisées, dont le tirage est limité, exigent en effet un marketing particulier efficace, une publicité diffusée avec précision dans le monde entier, et une logistique tout à fait pointue. PETER LANG Publishing, Inc. à New York est fondée en 1982 ; la représentation britannique de PETER LANG AG est implantée à Oxford en 1996 ; enfin, P.I.E.-PETER LANG est établie à Bruxelles en 1999.
