Abstract

Each year BBC News School Report events support teams of British pupils in producing authentic news outputs. Some items are broadcast on radio or television, and all are made available online. Conducting the independent national evaluation in 2009, we found positive results in terms of learning outcomes and attitudes towards current affairs and media production. Here we focus on aspects of digital literacies, analysing processes and outcomes through a multiliteracies framework. Implications for teachers, supporters and the BBC are considered.
