Storying with Technology: An Approach to Connect Children and Adults Using the New Technology and Media Landscape
Cruz, Felicity M. F.; Snider, Sharla L.
Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, v10 n4 p378-388 2009
As our technology-rich society absorbs the impact of fast-paced technology evolution, we face a desperate situation: a widening digital divide, especially the intergenerational divide between adults and children. The proposed "Storying with Technology" approach presents a structure to guide adults while engaging with children in meaningful activity surrounding technology. The purpose of the approach is to promote connection and reconnection, meaning making, and the development of multiple literacies. Because of the presence of evolving technology, both children and adults must deal with a fluid identity, relationship, culture, and society. Storying with Technology is an approach that guides individuals through activity to maintain relationships with the self, with the other, and with the object. (Contains 2 figures.)
