Artifacts as Stories: Understanding Families, Digital Literacies, and Storied Lives
Lewis Ellison, Tisha
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v59 n5 p511-513 Mar-Apr 2016
This column focuses on the interactions during family and group conversation circles that not only helped participants talk about personal, emotional, and social issues in their digital stories but also helped them make sense of artifacts and the meanings that stories carry in shared spaces and practices. This work adds to the bourgeoning dimensions of today's family structures and changing practices in digital literacy research. In addition, it introduces artifactual literacies as a theory that signifies how artifacts are infused with meanings and mediated in everyday literacies vis-à-vis stories and texts.
