Reading, Writing and Technology: A Special Virtual Issue

Over recent years, relationships between reading, writing and technology have played out in diverse and multiple ways. For some, work has focused on using new technologies to support the development of particular literacy skills whilst others have responded to new technologies by exploring the possibilities for new literacy practices. All this has implications for how we see reading and writing and consequently for literacy pedagogies. The collection of articles in this virtual issue demonstrates this diversity.
