What Immigrant Students Can Teach Us about New Media Literacy
Lam, Wan Shun Eva
Phi Delta Kappan, v94 n4 p62-65 Dec 2012
Adolescents who have immigrant backgrounds are developing language, literacy, and social skills across national borders as they use social media and online tools to interact with people and information sources in different communities across their countries of origin and settlement. These transnational digital practices have the potential to serve students well in schools if they're recognized and leveraged to promote new media literacy for a global age.
