Through a multimodal media production literacy intervention in an extended-day program, culturally and linguistically diverse youth developed valuable information and communication technology literacies, including

  • Specific how-to skills useful in future academic, professional, social, and civic contexts
  • Abilities to critically interpret and produce media
  • Understanding of the value of skills and literacies across contexts

Instead of teaching reading and writing as universally applicable neutral skills, teachers taught students to use multimodal media production as a relevant sociocultural practice that demanded school-based literacies.
