Digital technologies are part of contemporary life and their creative and potentially subversive appropriation has provoked transformations in the ways knowledge and information are produced. Based on the concepts of digital literacies (SNYDER, 2009; BUZATO, 2009; MOITA LOPES, 2010) and on communicative task-based language teaching (BROWN, 2007; WILLIS, 1996), we developed activities for English learning by adolescents, high school students, in an immersion context. Through the institutional program "Novos Talentos", sponsored by CAPES, we planned and developed activities in English around different digital literacy practices aiming at an interdisciplinary work. In this article, we discuss the theoretical framework foregrounding the activities, describe the activities developed for different workshops and discuss the roles digital literacies may have in the development of interdisciplinary projects and English teaching and learning.
