Additional Information: This book examines the impact of technology on literacy and learning across the core curriculum subjects and beyond. It takes a multimodal perspective to investigate the digital texts that technologies enable teachers to bring into the classroom and examines in detail how these are used by teachers and students and the implications for learning, literacy and pedagogy. The book draws on numerous empirical case studies from a range of research projects. It is innovative and original in that it expands multimodal theory with respect to technology-mediated learning and establishes robust multimodal research methods and analytical procedures. For instance, the application of concepts of multimodality to examine new modal forms – such as hyperlinks, layout, and layers and ways of analyzing image, sound, action and the relationships between these. This work has sold over 1,000 copies and is cited and used in papers in a range of journals, and has received positive reviews in leading journals, and has been praised for enabling educators to think ‘newly’ about technology and how to ‘reconfigure’ themselves and their learning environments.
