This paper will present data collected in university-school research partnership in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The paper draws on 9th grade students’ digital compositions, blogs, and group threaded discussions as data which were analyzed to answer the over-arching research question: “What is the impact of digital technologies for pedagogy and literacy learning?” The presentation will focus on students’ learning, in particular on themes of creativity, self assessment, collaboration, technological skills and peer affirmation – all of which were topics introduced by students as they interacted on the Ning, a private social networking site. Taking advantage of the affordances of the site, the students went far beyond the assignment, as this paper explains, and used the site to build community, exchange ideas, reflect on learning processes, and express feelings about the central text, Romeo and Juliet, as well as similar-themed texts they had read and viewed on their own.
