Third space in cyberspace : Indigenous youth, new technologies and literacies
Kapitzke, Cushla & Renshaw, Peter (2004) Third space in cyberspace : Indigenous youth, new technologies and literacies. In van der Linden, Jos & Renshaw, Peter (Eds.) Dialogic Learning : Shifting perspectives to learning, instruction, and teaching. Kluwer Academic Publishers, Dordrecht, pp. 45-61.
This chapter analyses the affordances and constraints of an online literacy program designed for Indigenous Australian youth through a partnership between the Indigenous community, university staff and local schools. The after-school program sought to build on the cultural resources and experiences of the young people through a dialogic process of planning, negotiating, implementing, reflecting, and renegotiating the program with participants and a range of stakeholders. In the majority of cases, students presented themselves as part of pervasive global popular cultures, often hot-linking their webpages to pop icons and local sports stars. Elders regarded their competency as a potential cultural tool and community resource.
