Abstract

Because this book is concerned with the issues around digital media and education, as seen through both a sociocultural and a political lens, we have chosen to begin by looking at the ways in which these issues are represented in recent definitions of ‘literacy’ which have been mobilised by a range of different theorists and interest groups. We will suggest that the term ‘dynamic literacies’ could extend concepts in the ‘new literacy studies’ to generate an inclusive, umbrella term which is inclusive enough to encompass the changing nature of meaning-making in the context of digital media and culture. As media educators, we understand that the ways in which an education system engages positively, negatively, or not at all with media texts and practices is framed by what is admissible in its formal structures and educational settings as ‘literacy’; any definition of literacy frames and defines pedagogy.
