Comic Reflections: Students Reflect on Digital Literacy Skills

Written by Kevin Hodgson

(This is reposted from my blog, where I have been writing about a digital literacies workshop I have been facilitating for English Language Learners high school students. We’ve been doing a range of activities, leading into video game design. The workshop is sponsored by the Western Massachusetts Writing Project in conjunction with an urban school district.)

We are midway through our digital literacies workshop with high school students (as part of a larger initiative to target English Language Learners with academic support and enrichment and jobs over the summer) so we had them go into our Webcomic site to write about a few things they have learned so far this summer with us.

We like that students are referencing a range of learning, from creating games to using the Webmaker tools to our vocabulary activities around digital literacy terms.
