Abstract

Mobile technology is now ubiquitous in families' lives and, as such, provides fertile ground for organic technology learning embedded within everyday home practices, like oral storytelling. This article explores the experiences of three Latinx women participating in a family digital storytelling program held at an East Los Angeles Head Start preschool program. The mother, Fernanda, was a teacher at the school and invited her two adolescent daughters, Sofía and Catalina, to participate in the program. The analysis of their final digital stories, in tandem with information gathered via observations and interviews, shows that all three women enhanced their technological literacies in addition to creativity and confidence in an intergenerational, informal learning environment.
