Emotionally Crafted Experiences: Layering Literacies in Minecraft
Abrams, Sandra Schamroth; Rowsell, Jennifer
Reading Teacher, v70 n4 p501-506 Jan-Feb 2017
Digital literacies play a foundational role in the rhythm and pattern of our lives, yet debates continue about how to harness them for educational purposes. In an effort to humanize digital literacies, this column provides a venue for research and practical applications that depict technology use as part of the fabric of being human. This particular article, "Emotionally Crafted Experiences: Layering Literacies in Minecraft," focuses on the ways that emotion transcends the screen and helps students layer their meaning making. As such, the Digital Literacy column will help educators reconceptualize the ways that children learn with technology, media, and new communication systems. It honors educator success stories and burning questions and issues, and it reimagines literacy futures.
