A Story About a Girl with a Disability Online: Constructing a New Reality
Storybird created by Laurinda Webb for ENG 213: Digital Literacies.
This Storybird examines the life of a young girl with disabilities and the way she remains strong in the face of adversity, especially when digital technologies cause her many problems. She grew up having trouble with her speech and with relating to the world around her; she was mistreated by the people she loved and called her classmates and friends. Digital technologies caused her many problems with her health, but she overcame those obstacles to become more communicative with the world around her. Today, technology is a part of her everyday life as a student and a teacher.
