Evaluating Multimodal Literacies in Student Blogs
O'Byrne, Barbara; Murrell, Stacey
British Journal of Educational Technology, v45 n5 p926-940 Sep 2014
This research presents ways in which high school students used the multimodal and interactive affordances of blogs to create, organize, communicate and participate on an educational blog. Their actions demonstrated how plural modes of literacy are infiltrating digital environments and reshaping literacy and learning. Multimodal blogging practices of participants broaden the discourse about educational blogs to include an understanding of blogs as media-rich platforms in which learners operate with plural modes of literacy to construct meaning, communicate and participate.
