Alfabetismos digitales. Comunicación, innovación y educación en la era electrónica, by Ilana Snyder.

Jordi Planella (

Professor in Psychology and Educational Science Studies at the UOC


In this book, Ilana Snyder offers us a critical, provocative, groundbreaking and radical look at literacy practices. The importance of the book lies in the fact that, despite being in the information society, there is at present little research and few texts published that “clarify” (or at least that opens up the possibility of so doing) the epistemologies and pedagogies surrounding the practices of literacy.


From a multi-dimensional point of view, the various authors that Snyder brings together in this volume analyse the role of hypertext in education, linguistic pluralism on the Internet and educational practices, socio-digital immersion, the use of symbologies on the screen, videogames as instruments of digital literacy or critical pedagogy in the information age.
