Reading/viewing and writing/designing often work across modes, media, and genres for contemporary learners.
• Multimodal approaches to teaching and learning recognise how meaning can be made across linguistic, visual, aural, kinaesthetic, and spatial- temporal modes.
• Written or printed language is but one mode for representing understanding and conveying meaning.
• Multimodality seeks to engage with the ever-changing communications landscape that comes with technological development, as well as engage with cross- and inter-cultural communication. It is therefore both a creative and a critical domain.
