Abstract

The ubiquitous nature of technology has had a dramatic impact on the way we use and practice language in our lives. As such, many researchers and theorists have considered new definitions of literacy. The project reported in this paper uses the term multiliteracy based on two concepts: (i) that language is used to make meaning in different ways and in different contexts and (ii) that meaning is made through multimodality (i.e, different modes and combinations of modes of communication).
