“So We Have to Teach Them or What?”: Introducing Preservice Teachers to the Figured Worlds of Urban Youth Through Digital Conversation
Using a figured world framework, the authors explore how social interaction made possible through digital tools shaped the actions and identities of 16 preservice teachers. The findings reveal that providing preservice teachers with virtual access to urban youth’s figured worlds allowed the preservice teachers to better understand the cultural artifacts of these students’ worlds. In doing so, they were forced to acknowledge the importance of maintaining the belief that all students, including those from urban backgrounds, can and want to engage in rigorous learning.
