Abstract or Description

The idea for researching multilingual digital storytelling arose out of concerns to do with language and literacy education in the UK context relating in particular to multilingualism and the growing role played by the digital media. At a time when the ability to navigate different cultural frames and different modes of communication have become key skills, we were deeply aware of the failure of mainstream education to prepare young people adequately for life in an increasingly interdependent and interconnected world.
