Creating Multimodal Texts - Yrs 3-7 (Term 2)

PL # 12564.


Starting on 13 May 2020
Cancellation permitted until 10/05/2020

Event registrations closed on 13/05/2020


The documentation for all learning areas in the curriculum suggests that the use of multi-modal texts is a way for students to share their stories, learning journeys, research or creative ideas. As multiple forms of media are used in their creation, they are also a perfect way to embed design skills and ICT and critical and creative thinking capabilities. In this very practical workshop we will explore the many different ways that multi-modal texts and multimedia can be used for changing up traditional lessons and encouraging students to make more creative and skilled use of cross-curricular technologies. Participants can consider how they would apply the skills in the context of their own teaching grade or area.

The workshop will introduce:
