[Extract] Many school literacy practices continue to ignore youths' digitally mediated subjectivity as it has been shaped by thenew media age. Providing teachers with assistance to incorporate digital literacies in teh classroom is not always readily available. This guide works to counter that reality by presenting tutorials that provide teachers with theknowledge and know-how to digitise aspects of their classroom practice. The tutorials aim to helpteachers design classrooms where students can use their imagination and creativity to combine print, visual and digital modes in combinations that can be applied to new educational, civic, media and workplace contexts. Classrooms can recognise and validates students' design skills as they are encouraged to critically re-represent curricular knowledge thorugh multi-modeil design alongside traditional print based literacies still required for academic success. Through using this guide, teaching and assessment - rather than privileging print-only representations - can be redesigned to harness students' creativity as classroom teaching and learning practices integrate and adapt to the new digital affordances they acquire through their out-of-school literacy practices making teaching and learning relevant to their lifeworlds.
