New Technologies, New Possibilities for the Arts and Multimodality in English Language Arts
Williams, Wendy R.
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v14 n4 p327-355 Dec 2014
This article discusses the arts, multimodality, and new technologies in English language arts. It then turns to the example of the illuminated text--a multimodal book report consisting of animated text, music, and images--to consider how art, multimodality, and technology can work together to support students' reading of literature and inspire their creativity. Illuminated texts are also discussed in terms of teaching considerations and alignment to Common Core State Standards. This project demonstrates that with new technologies come new possibilities for the arts and multimodality in English language arts.
