Cope & Kalantzis: Literacies (from their site, Newlearningonline.com)

‘Literacies’ presents a contemporary approach to literacy learning and teaching, developing and extending ‘Multiliteracies’ theory and practice. This site presents supporting material for the book by Mary Kalantzis & Bill Cope, published by Cambridge University Press in 2011. The website supplements traditional ideas of literacy in the singular—learning to read and write—by expanding the area of focus to cover ‘literacies’ in the plural.

» Babies and iPads: A New Type of Discussion | WIRED

The response to a recent post in GeekDad about the “A Magazine Is an iPad That Does Not Work” Video was significant, both personally and for the creator of the video (with whom we hope to have a discussion-based post up soon). However, it also lead me to a range of great research and thinking around children and mobile technology. There are people out there interested in changing the way we talk, think and engage in discussions about children and technology. Discussions beyond “good vs. bad” that are interested in the nuances of the role technology plays in children’s lives and how we can or can’t shape that in ways that support our children as they grow.

I like this quote. New sites have been launched since this article was written but it's a good starting point in your research  of  educational sites to explore.
