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."

Abstract: The Web assessment and media monitoring methodology presented in this chapter provides empirical Web data by automatically mirroring and processing large samples of Web information systems. For this research, 50 international media sites have been monitored in monthly intervals. The wealth of information contained in these sites was converted into aggregated representations through structural and textual analysis. This process yielded detailed profiles for each site and roughly one billion words of textual raw data. The resulting indicators and visualizations describe complex relationships and developments in the Web coverage of renewable energies that can hardly be captured and analyzed in traditional ways.
