Abstract

We are living amidst major changes, changes creating new ways with words, new literacies, and new forms of learning. These changes are creating, as well, new relationships and alignments within, between, and among the spheres of family, school, business and science. This chapter seeks to place language, literacy, and learning in the broad context of these new alignments, alignments from which new ‘kinds of people’ are emerging. These issues are, as well, the backdrop against which the Multiliteracies Project has been carrying out its discussions and from which it is making its proposals.
