Extending horizons: Critical technological literacy for urban Aboriginal students
Doherty, Catherine A. (2002) Extending horizons: Critical technological literacy for urban Aboriginal students. Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy, 46(1), pp. 50-59.
This article outlines the distinctive features of a small-scale literacy progam for urban Aboriginal school students, which was premised on understandings of critical multiliteracies and explored through technological environments and texts. The article reports the pedagogical decisions and design as refined through five action research cycles. The rationale included: avoiding a deficit paradigm; exploring multiple roles for readers, developing multiliteracies across texts and technologies; building a community of expertise; developing a technical vocabulary; being inclusive of the students' worlds; fostering independent learning and problem-solving strategies; experiencing electronic communities; and including role models.
