Abstract: Authorship is changing in the 21st century because of contemporary technologies such as web 2.0 tools and access to mobile devices.  Through their own agency, children are increasingly choosing tech-enhanced media, especially since children are given opportunities to be positioned as co-authors when they use these materials. How then do we integrate 21st century technical tools and pedagogies without compromising the integrity of traditional children’s literature? And further, how might educators look to published authors and their digital authorship/presentations in order to re-connect today’s media savvy youth with imaginative and modal authorship opportunities through children’s literature?
