Connecting digital literacy between home and school


This report is the result of a seven-month research project into the connections and discontinuities between children’s digital literacy practices at home and in school. It formed one strand of a larger project exploring children’s digital participation.  This report provides a brief introduction to the research project, setting out the key ideas underpinning the research, and describes the research project and methods used. It then presents and explores findings from the research, drawing out some common themes and discussing challenges and opportunities for connecting children’s digital literacy between home and school. This report aims to provide evidence of children’s current digital literacy practices, where there are opportunities for connections to be developed or established between home and school, and where there are disconnections that may need to be addressed. This report is likely to be of interest to researchers and primary and secondary teachers interested in the field of digital literacy.
