Abstract:This chapter reviews literature addressing the following question: What is the relationship of new literacies to community inquiry? We are concerned with how new technologies highlight enduring issues of community and, conversely, how communities change new technologies. These concerns are embedded within larger issues of participation, citizenship, cooperation, com- munity membership, change, and collective memory. The chapter speaks from the perspective of progressive education’s emphasis on understanding the deep connections among literacy, learning, technology, and community but does not limit its view to work explicitly in that tradition.
