Cyberwriters: Bringing Historical Fiction into the world of New Literacies

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter

Abstract

Cyberwriters was a writing project for young writers (between 11 and 15 years) who wanted to learn to create historical fiction stories using digital images, sounds and words. Unsworth (2006) elucidated the need for teachers of literature to connect with the multiliterate worlds of young readers in order to broaden their experience. The aims of the Cyberwriters project were to learn about the multiliterate practices of young people, and to discover ways in which historical fiction could be created using new technology.
