aprendiendo juntosIn June 2012, the National Center for Family Literacy (NCFL), the Joan Ganz Cooney Center (JGCC) and the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) convened more than 50 of the nation’s leading scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers to discuss the state of our knowledge of the role and implications of digital technologies in the lives of Hispanic-Latino families. This report provides an overview of the day’s discussions and contextualizes the conversations that took place about the critical need to redefine literacy to include digital media, and the possibilities that emerge when scholars incorporate innovative methodologies into their research.
