The paper explores the concept of Digital Visual Literacy (DVL) within transnational family communication. It focuses on the experiences of immigrant women using ICTs to communicate with their families from afar and the digital visual practices they employ. The study emphasizes the emotional labor involved in managing these communications and the manipulation of visibility levels.

It highlights the importance of understanding DVL for adult literacy education, expanding definitions of digital and visual literacies, and considering educational implications such as curriculum development and deeper visual pedagogy.
