Literacy in the digital world of the twenty first century: learning from computer gamesAustralian Research Council 2007-2010(Beavis, Bradford, O’mara, Walsh; Apperly and Gutierrez)
You can’t really get at the meaning of various forms piecemeal: you have to integrate the text with its fellow travellers, cross-contextualising them by one another, to get at the kinds of meanings being made and stored’ (Lemke 2007, cited in Alverman 2008 p 15).
