Presenting new literacies

Sarah Jones, Steve Dawkins, Julian McDougall

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter returns to the provisional framework for understanding virtual reality as and for literacies offered earlier in the book and works with ideas about “unsettling literacies” to extract themes, to do with ways of being in VR and ways of seeing it (conceptually). As such, it offers a synoptic account of what the collection has contributed to our understanding.

The purpose is to, if not straightforwardly convert, then at least motivate the work generated throughout the book on understanding virtual reality, towards a sense of how, in both theory and practice, we can think about, in more educational spaces, this dynamic and purposely precarious relationship between virtual reality and (media) literacy, most explicitly with regard to critical meta-reflection on experience.
