JEREZ-RODRIGUEZ, Sonia  and  NAVAS-RIOS, María E.. Reading, Writing and Communicating in another Language with New Literacy Practices outside the Classroom. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2019, vol.30, n.2, pp.315-326. ISSN 0718-0764.

New literacy practices of students of English as a foreign language outside the classroom and in their daily lives, to communicate and learn are described and analyzed. A case study methodology was followed with 13 future teachers of English. To gather the information the participants collected pictures of what they read and wrote, performed deep interviews and form a focus group. The information was analyzed through the software Atlas.Ti and according to the results, it is shown that reading and writing in another language became part of the daily lives of the participants, and allowed them to interpret meaning from texts that were built from linguistic, oral, or visual elements. At the end, the participants interacted and communicated in the language they learnt, with others who were geographically distant.
