This first chapter in the book provides a general overview of literacy, technology and the notion of multilitearcies. As such its purpose is to help orientate the reader and contextualise the concept of literacy and its evolution into mnltiliteracies through a chronological review of literacy, and specifically literacy pedagogy, over the last quarter of a century. Following this journey the concept of literacy combined with technology is expanded on. This chapter therefore provides the reader with an overview and understanding of the field of literacy and how technology has resulted in a range of multi-modal forms of communication known as multiliteracies.
