Reading today about multiliteracies, technology and teaching culturally diverse students. The following quote resonated with me:
McCarthey and Dressman (2000) imagine future classrooms as a “multicultural quilt created from diverse experiences and backgrounds of children and teachers, stitched together by their contacts with one another within the seams of schools” with the image of the quilt breaking down the hierarchy and “the rhizomatic spread of innovative literacy experience” (p.548)
