Using ICT to Support Multimodal Literacy Practices from Foundation to Year 6
This course is designed for F-6 teachers, and will cover a range of abilities from beginners to more advanced uses of ICT. The course explores the pedagogy and potential use of ICT to support all areas of literacy, including: reading, writing, visual literacy, speaking and listening using multimodality, which is a prominent part of the curriculum. Throughout the day we will explore how we make meaning through reading and creating a variety of digital multimodal texts to support literacy development. The course will be hands-on and participants will be provided with practical ideas that you will be able to take back to your classroom.
