A CULTURE OF SHARING - A Look at Identity Development Through the Creation and Presentation of Digital Media Projects

Caitlin Kennedy Martin, Brigid Barron, Kimberly Austin, Nichole Pinkard

Abstract

We share two longitudinal case studies of thirteen-year-old students who were part of a design intervention focusing on media production and technological fluency, tracking how project production and presentation developed students’ sense of themselves and their reputation within the community. Practices supporting positive academic and creative identity development are highlighted.
