“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.

Reframing the Assignment: Evolutions, Not Revolutions, in Learning to Teach Writing with Digital Technologies
In this article, the author discusses the importance of conceptualizing place and space in teacher professional development intervention research. Using a cultural historical activity theory framework, the author discusses how the cultural and historical aspects of the place and context in which the teachers taught mediated the teachers’ understandings of the affordances of incorporating critical digital literacies into their classroom teaching. Findings suggest introducing new tools into the rural setting helped influence teachers’ identity in their role as professional educators. The professional development intervention helped the teachers develop a greater sense of agency and purpose within their rural context.

Assessment of Creativity in Arts and STEM Integrated Pedagogy by Pre-service Elementary Teachers
This study focused on integrating STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) lessons with arts-themed activities to create interdisciplinary STEAM education in order to simultaneously address these two contemporary challenges. The participants were 124 pre-service elementary teachers, who used multimedia production technologies to develop original STEAM lessons. The results showed general overall similarities among the three participating groups of bilingual generalist (BG), regular generalist (RG), and undecided generalist (UG) pre-service elementary teachers in regard to their peer evaluation scores for achievement of creativity-related objectives in the STEAM lessons.
