Pub. Date:
Braun (library and information science, Simmons College) explores the ways teens communicate in cyberspace, considering how the various technologies affect literacy and communication habits and skills. The author believes that, in spite of the commonality of bad grammar, acronyms, and poor spelling, communication via instant messaging, email, and podcasting is creating a new community of learning and is a boon to literacy. Here, she supports these findings and offers strategies to librarians and educators for taking advantage of the type of learning those technologies encourage.
