This chapter examines the interactional methods by which two young siblings coproduce knowledge with digital technologies at home. It highlights how the older child’s sharing of alphabetic literacy knowledge to help her brother use an iPhone application (app) is closely related to her organization of the interaction. During the course of interaction the older child accounts for the appearance of her actions in demonstrating her knowledge and employs interactional and technological resources to socially accomplish the sharing of knowledge with her brother. Analysis reveals the sophisticated means by which the children coproduce literacy knowledge in situ in their activities using technologies in the home.
