Reading and writing are being transformed by global changes in communication practices using new media technologies. This article introduces iPed, a research-based pedagogy that enables teachers to navigate innovative digital text production in the literacy classroom. The pedagogy was generated in the context of a longitudinal digital literacy intervention in a school that services low-socioeconomic and ethnically diverse students. The iPed pedagogy synthesizes four key pedagogies that were salient in the analysis of over 180 hours of lesson observations: link, challenge, cocreate, and share. The strengths of iPed include connecting to students' home cultures, critical media literacy, collaborative and creative digital text production, and gaining cosmopolitan recognition within global communities.
