Abstract

Contends that most student teachers of English in Great Britain now welcome information technology (IT) in English, seeing it as central to the literacy of all pupils. Finds some current English teachers remain ambivalent about IT, but the general trend is toward a broader definition of literacy that gives significant value to electronic text alongside the printed word.
