Multimodal texts: video
17 November 2008Add to My Folder
Develop visual literacy skills by getting your class to recall and analyse a digital text
Multimodal (or digital texts) can be incorporated into literacy through the use of the internet, digital cameras, sound recording software, presentational software, and so on. The new series by Scholastic, Multimodal Texts, allows you and your class to explore and study these types of media in a safe environment.
The following activity has been taken from Multimodal Texts: Year 2 and uses online video as an example of a digital text.
- Strand 2: Respond to presentation by describing characters, repeating some highlights and commenting constructively.
- Strand 9: Sustain form in narrative, including use of person and time.
