Learner Digital Stories in a Web 2.0 Age
Alameen, Ghinwa,
TESOL Journal, v2 n3 p355-369 Sep 2011
This article reports on a 4-week class project in which students created Web 2.0 digital stories and shared and discussed them with their peers using VoiceThread, a digital media online tool. Participants were English language learners in an academic writing class at a major research university in the United States. Digital stories provided an interactive venue for building learner communities, fostering collaboration, engaging learners in multiliteracies, and creating opportunities for global audience interaction and feedback. (Contains 2 figures.)
