TechTiger's Space

TechTiger’s Space is an informational blog and Power Point presentation, which is designed to be perceived as a children's book. This resource was inspired by the article "The Uncanny: Digital Texts and Literacy," by Victoria Carrington. Essentially this article put into perspective how older generations (parents, educators, administrators, etc.) feel and think about digital technology, its growth throughout society, and the way the face of childhood itself is being altered as digital texts comes front and center as literacy. TechTiger's Space tells a story of a modern day child who changed the perspective of older generations due to his experience with contemporary culture. Through use of a blog, this resource illustrates how modern day children use tools such as the internet to socialize and enhance their learning using technology based tools.
