Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time."

Title: Reading Images - The Grammar of Visual Design
Written By: Gunther Kress
Theo van Leeuwen
Description:

Reading Images provides a systematic and comprehensive account of the grammar of visual design. Drawing on an enormous range of examples--children's drawings, textbook illustrations, photojournalism, advertising images and fine art, as well as three-dimensional forms--the authors demonstrate the differences and the similarities between the grammar of language and that of visual culture. As we move from a culture dominated by language to one in which visual literacy becomes increasingly important, this book provides an invaluable ``tool-kit'' for reading images.
