A special issue of the open access journal, Language and Literacy, emanated from this unique, jointly-sponsored conference held at the University of British Columbia Faculty of Education in spring 2016 that brought together international scholars, Canadian scholars, and local community educators to address issues of (in)equities of digital literacies in homes, schools, and communities locally and across the world. As researchers at UBC and Simon Fraser University, the editors wanted to develop an archive of the many ways that educators are and should be responsive to the various constraints as well as the possibilities for engaging people in meaningful digital language and literacy practices. This rich archive includes a range of papers from scholars and practitioners.
