research overview

  • In her instruction and scholarship, Dr. Noguerón-Liu aims to create learning environments where teachers capitalize on the knowledge of culturally and linguistically diverse students. Her research builds on the following areas: (a) the study of literacy practices in transnational contexts from ethnographic perspectives, (b) the critical examination of digital literacies and technology access in classrooms and communities; and (c) participatory and community-based research in family literacy and home-school partnerships. Her projects—conducted in traditional and new migration settings—document the affordances of digital resources for Latino families, and the transnational funds of knowledge parents mobilize in literacy practices with young children.
