dc.description.abstractMuch research since the turn of the century has explored how young people’s literacy practices at home and in their communities may be more diverse and engaging than those experienced at school. What is less known is how the skills learnt through these diverse literacy practices may contribute to building early adolescents’ personal and social capabilities. This paper gives evidence for the development of personal and social capabilities in adolescents’ life literacies, such as music video creation, coding games, playing video games, making movies, and learning through YouTube. Students participated in activities related to technical, functional, interpretive, creative, and interactive skills. We found that these practices revealed three themes of identity formation: social roles, friendship networks, and peer solidarity. The paper then discusses how these relate to personal and social capabilities, and considers implications for teaching practices in schools. Given the complexity of today’s world, as well as the Australian Curriculum’s general capabilities that include personal and social proficiencies, it is timely that this case study is reported.
