Helping teachers to explore multimodal texts
Current definitions of literacy frequently refer to multimedia and multimodal texts, and there are references to such materials throughout the draft version of the new national English curriculum. It is therefore timely to consider how teachers can become familiar with and confident in their use of multimodal texts in the classroom. The authors identify areas of professional learning of particular value for integrating multimodal texts into classroom practice and suggest ways to introduce professional learning in schools.
