Bringing together renowned scholars in literacy education, this volume offers the first comprehensive account of the evolution and future of multiliteracies pedagogy. This groundbreaking collection examines the rich contributions of the New London Group (NLG)—an international gathering of noted scholars who met in 1996 and influenced the direction of literacy scholarship for decades to come. With a focus on design and multimodality as key concerns in literacy pedagogy, these ideas have become even more salient as literacy has become intertwined with digital technologies. The essays in this book not only provide an overview of the fundamental ideas of NLG and their importance across literacy, communications, and media studies, but also explore how these concepts have been adapted by today’s educators to better prepare students for a rapidly changing, globalized world.

Book Features:

  • Identifies the major contributions of the NLG and suggests why and how it has been so influential.
  • Includes chapters from original members of NLG, as well as contemporary scholars working with the concept of multiliteracies.
  • Describes pedagogical approaches and their implications for instruction.
