A New Literacies Sampler was published earlier this year, and, in the spirit of open access, the publishers, Peter Lang, have very kindly granted permission to run the final page proofs of A New Literacies Sampler online. The chapters authors have likewise agreed enthusiastically to have the book available as an open access resource.
The book comprises a collection of research studies that focus on new literacies, and includes chapters on wireless laptop classrooms, live action role play, video games, popular youth-oriented websites, blogs, fanfiction, collaborative writing using IM, discussion fora etc, and online memes.
The book can be accessed here (http://www.soe.jcu.edu.au/sampler) as a complete set of pdf page proofs. The links on the page beneath the
cover image will take you to the book contents and the entire text,
Colin Lankshear and I are really pleased to be able to invite you to read a freely-available digital version of the entire text.
