Multimodal Writing Projects
Multimodal assignments go beyond words to communicate. Supplementing text with audio, video, photographs, images and other sensory media, all extend the reach of the ideas students hope to convey. In this workshop, we’ll examine how incorporating projects such as podcasts, blogs, collages, video or audio essays, comic strips and storyboards into the curriculum aid in the development of visual and digital literacy while giving students opportunities to express their ideas in new and exciting ways.
