Abstract

Literacies developed in digital worlds are part of the out-of-school experiences that students bring into their classrooms every day. This article, which draws from a multiple case study undertaken in an international school, calls on a sociocultural–new literacies approach to explore identity, discourse and space within the online practices of Third Culture Kids. For Third Culture Kids, digital worlds offer new kinds of spaces of belonging from which to explore social connections and a sense of self.
