Excerpt from Show

Henry Aronson, English professor at San Diego City College:

It's really made a huge difference to get the young adults who often don't like English, to play around with creating—and then once they've created—they realize they have something to say, something to express in writing on top of these kind of digital art pieces [or] digital create pieces."
