Abstract

This article describes the development of a Web-based literacy learning software application: Technology Enhanced Learning Environment on the Web (TELE-Web). TELE-Web was developed based on an existing literacy program for elementary school students. In describing the development of TELE-Web, we adopt an emerging perspective on technology and established practices in education and literacy. This perspective also explores how technology is affected by literacy practices in educational contexts, instead of concentrating only on the effects of technology.
