Making Knowledge Common

Literacy and Knowledge at Work


Lesley Farrell

Making Knowledge Common looks at how ordinary people in ordinary workplaces use literacy to make the global knowledge economy happen. It challenges established views of what «counts» as knowledge at work, of how ICT (information and communication technology) helps and hinders people sharing knowledge in global networks of production, and of how workplace education develops and promotes the literacy practices that connect global knowledge economies. This book must be read by any instructor who teaches in the area of literacy, and by every graduate student who follows the field.
