It Was a Challenge but We Did It! Digital Worlds in a Primary Classroom
Graham, Lynda
Literacy, v43 n2 p107-114 Jul 2009
In this article I explore one day in the life of a primary classroom in which teacher and children are "playful social" insiders in digital worlds. I argue that this snapshot offers glimmers of unimagined ways forward in teaching in digital worlds. The classroom culture is one of challenge, collective intelligence and reflection. The teacher's own history of participation is significant. She is a reflective teacher educator, children's literature is central to her teaching and her journey into digital worlds is "playful social."
