Abstract

This article discusses the benefits of including “children’s eCulture” in school curricula. “Children’s eCulture” is the culture of children as it relates to electronics and technology. Integrating children’s eCulture into formal learning experiences allows teachers to promote multiple literacies in their students. The article will describe the recreational uses of technology by children; link these applications to school curricula; familiarize educators with children’s eCulture as means for promoting multiple literacies across the curriculum; and discuss the need to integrate children’s eCulture in teacher education programs.
