Digital video enters into the English classroom as a new media form and a new tool for composition. As students learn best when they use multiliteracies to read and compose in new ways (Selfe & Selfe, 2008), composing with digital video requires that we examine how we produce, distribute, invent, explore, persuade, and create texts (Grabill & Hicks, 2005). Here, writing links message and tool, purpose and audience, all the while critiquing the very tools used for expressing meaning. Further, doing so alongside web 2.0 tools creates opportunities for leveraging audience participation in ways that yield authentic collaboration and feedback.
