Digital Discussions: "La Esperanza" in the Shared Virtual Classroom


ELSHALIF Volume 6, Number 10, ISSN 1096-1232


Presents a case study of the online literature discussions of undergraduate children's literature students in geographically distant classrooms. Notes that with their digital conversations, students constructed a text in which diverse voices were heard and engagement with the social and political issues raised in the literature was deepened. Suggests that shared virtual classrooms create powerful communication and learning environments for promoting multicultural understanding and technology-enabled literacy. (PM)
