It is commonly accepted that teaching Digital Media Production to any student in the world will provide them with an avenue for their voices. But after 5 years of witnessing the students as they learn these skills, both in developed and developing countries, it has become evident that students gain so much more than just a way to tell their stories. Using learners in Cambodia who had little or no exposure previous to technology as a case study, we have identified 5 major literacies that come from Digital Media Production lessons.
