Abstract

In this paper we focus on the roles technology played in language and literacy learning activities within a 2nd grade classroom at Zapata Elementary, a school of more than 400 students located in a metropolitan area in the Southern United States. We identify and examine a range of creative and participatory practices that we witnessed over a three month period –describing and theorizing about the way various available technologies were used.
