    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Language-learning identity texts, which are artifacts that illustrate language learners’ identity construction, emphasize the role of language learners as active agents of their own learning process. This artifact is an identity-text video created by student Ester Vizcaíno Zaera. To encourage self-reflection, the instructor of an advanced English class in Spain asked her students to develop a digital story in which they presented themselves as language learners by providing an account of either their entire language-learning experience or a specific stage of their learning processes. Learners were asked to depict their idiosyncrasies and include their learning styles and strategies in their digital stories. By asking her learners to develop these digital identity texts, the instructor helped learners strengthen their literacy engagement, understand that language learning results from their own efforts, and reject a negative self-view that could prevent them from learning the target language. Because learners were expected to use video- or photo-editing programs, they also developed digital literacy skills.
