Transliteracy in Complex Information Environments Excerpt :

Transliteracy in Complex Information Environments considers this relatively new concept, which has attracted a great deal of interest in the library and information field, particularly among practitioners. The notion of transliteracy arises in the context of increasingly complex information and communication environments characterised by multimodality and new roles of creators and consumers. Transliteracy concerns the ability to apply and transfer a range of skills and contextual insights to a variety of settings. Rather than focusing on any one skillset or technology, transliteracy is about fluidity of movement across a range of contexts. This book is concerned with processes of learning and knowledge creation. An understanding of transliteracy emergesfrom research data gathered in university and high school settings. Transliteracy is considered in relation to other literacies as an overarching framework. Applications in education and lifelong learning are discussed. Social aspects of transliteracy are considered in relation to academic cultures and broader social trends, particularly hybrid cultures Provides an overarching model of transliteracy based on the well-established information literacy Relates to a number of professional and academic fields, such as library and information, education, communication, media, and cultural studies Integrates both professional and academic perspectives

This book is about the Internet of Things in the field of education. Specifically, it focuses on two major topics: IoT (Internet of Things) solutions to support distance education and new pedagogical approaches to support development of computational thinking with educational devices possessing the characteristics of IoT. As the educational landscape has dramatically changed in times of global pandemic, online resources and media, such as IoT, have become increasingly important. This situation compels all educational scholars, researchers and practitioners to search for new solutions, new educational pathways and new agents for knowledge development to support learning. This book presents the possibilities of IoT as both a catalyst and performance tool for education. The convergence of multiple technologies, real-time analytics, machine learning, commodity sensors, and embedded systems can serve as tools for learning support and this book details exactly how these powerful tools can be utilized to best effect.

Trans New Wave Cinema Excerpt :

This book presents a critical cultural study of the Trans New Wave as a cinematic genre and explores its emergence in the twenty-first century. Drawing on a diverse range of texts, the cultural, social, aesthetic and ethical implications of the genre are placed within the context of rapidly changing understandings of gender diversity. From the cinematic borderlands of independent film festivals to wider public recognition via digital technologies, the genre encompasses a diverse range of texts from short films, documentaries, experimental films, to feature films and narratives that range across life histories, narratives and themes. The book presents transliteracy as an original theoretical approach to reading film representations of the Trans New Wave, and combines it with a new theoretical concept of cinematic ethnogenesis to investigate how the genre emerged from specific communities and the reciprocal interaction of audiences and texts. This interdisciplinary volume engages with contemporary issues of gender diversity, transgender studies, screen and media studies and film festival studies, and as such will be of great interest to scholars working in these fields and in media and cultural studies more generally.

Metadata for Transmedia Resources Excerpt :

Transmedia is a technique of delivering a single piece of content in individual parts via different media and communication platforms (books, films, TV shows, games, live performances, etc.). In the book transmedia is considered as a case-in-point for the need to rethink library cataloguing and metadata practices in a new, heterogeneous information environment where the ability to bring together information from various sources into a meaningful whole becomes a critical information skill. Transmedia sheds new light on some of the long-existing questions of bibliographic information organisation (the definition of work, modelling of bibliographic relationships, subject analysis of fiction, etc.) and introduces libraries to new, transient and interactive media forms such as interactive fiction, gaming events, or performances. The book investigates how various theories and practices of bibliographic information organisation can be applied to transmedia, focusing on the solutions provided by the new bibliographic conceptual model IFLA LRM, as well as linked open data models and standards. It strongly advocates collaborative practices and reuse of knowledge that underpin an emerging vision of the library catalogue as a 'mediation tool' that assembles, links and integrates information across a variety of communication contexts. Explores transmedia from the point-of-view of information organisation Presents one of the first extensive analyses of the IFLA LRM bibliographic conceptual model Uses examples of recent publishing practices to assess current bibliographic data models, standards, formats and technologies

Modern Reading Practices and Collaboration Between Schools Family and Community Excerpt :

Language is one of the greatest predictors of personal, social, academic, and professional success. No one is born a reader; instead, learning to read is a process that requires time, effort, and availability. The only way for reading comprehension to develop is through practice: one learns to read by reading. As such, it is integral to acknowledge the importance of knowing how to read and facilitating this skill in schools and at home. Reading is a cornerstone for learning and no child will know academic success if their reading ability is compromised. Modern Reading Practices and Collaboration Between Schools, Family, and Community is a premier reference book that consolidates knowledge on reading competence. It presents the processes inherent in the act of reading and the mechanisms underlying the teaching and learning of reading, as well as all recent research in this area. Covering topics such as communication development, learning motivation, and transliteracy, this innovative title is an excellent resource for preservice teachers, childhood educators, educators of K-12 and higher education, academic libraries, teacher training lecturers, faculty and administration of K-12 and higher education, researchers, and academicians.
