In this paper I will first sketch out the background to the approach I take to literacy and technology—an approach I would call “situated-sociocultural”. By this term I mean a blend of themes from work on situated cognition dealing with mind and learning and work on sociocultural approaches to language, literacy, and technology. I will sketch out this background by over viewing several interdisciplinary intellectual movements that have arisen over the last few decades. I start with the New Literacy Studies and move on to Situated Cognition Studies, The New Literacies Studies, and the New Media Literacy Studies.
