Call for Participation
The Initiative for 21st Century Literacies Research is seeking blogs, position papers, and videos for peer-review publication, building upon faculty, graduate student, and practitioner research on contemporary literacies needed to succeed in complex environments, in and beyond schools. We publish blogs, position papers, manuscripts, action research, and reviews about varying topics regarding 21st century literacies, new literacies, and new media studies. Our projects help teachers and students integrate the classroom use of sophisticated technologies and new literacies, improve literacy teaching and learning, build relationships and collaborations through multiple avenues of communication and information, and participate critically and ethically in digital settings.
