multimodal composing

I’ve had a couple of crappy days this week, so when it looked like things might be easing last night, I found myself sitting at my desk, itching to make something. Let me be more specific. I found myself craving the experience of being immersed in the process of creating something. Of composing. It used to be that I would turn to writing when I craved this solace. I’ve used paper and notebook or...

Whether students are reading an actual book or reading on their phone, tablet, or any other device, I am a firm believer that even the most reluctant middle school readers can be nurtured and develop ap- preciation for literature and reading.

A_walk_on_the_other_side_by_gilad (1).jpg I'd like to invite you all in to a challenge that I've help develop with an awesome group of researchers. In this challenge, we will explore the use of digital texts and tools as a means to connect, collaborate, and share. This social media experiment first started as a outline for future research that Leanne Drapeau,  Greg...
Like many others, I was entranced by the New York Times publication of Snow Fall, the multimedia longform story of the avalanche at Tunnel Creek.  Snow Fall demonstrated that online, interactive—digital!— writing could find a place in journalism outlets. I could imagine wonderful conversations with students about such publications, particularly in the context of pushing beyond the narrow...
Background Through a generous grant from a corporate sponsor, our university was able to purchase 14 iPads with iMovie, young adult literature selections for book circles, and video cameras for a book trailer project with a local middle school. A book trailer is, no surprise here, a trailer for a book in the style of a movie trailer. Search YouTube for your favorite book + "book trailer" or "...
Anna Smith and I are starting up a "conversation" about writing in the digital age that will stretch across different platforms. We invite you to join us, too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bq5Wjh0ieL4&feature=youtu.be - Kevin
One of the many potentials of the shifts in envisioning writing in multimodal spaces is the chance for new conversations -- for stretching out thinking beyond your own physical space and joining in discussions about the changes now underfoot. During November 2012's Digital Writing Month, educators and writers and others from across many teaching levels and learning domains -- from public schools...
by Sarah Macie Skipwith & Anthony Miranda Overview: Integrating multimodality into a personal blog is not only a key component to individualizing blogs, but it also introduces students to the diversity of expression. At first glance multimodality might seem simple (just embed a video or cool series of photos, right?). Not quite. The challenge is to support students as they think about how...
With only enough time to “dip in” to Digital Is today, I identified a resource that was interesting to me in terms of a study group I’m co-facilitating with Christina Cantrill and Troy Hicks through www.P2PU.org titled “Writing and Inquiry in the Digital Age.”  Leslie Moitoza’s “Rethinking Composition in a Multimodal World” caught my attention in terms of helping to think about how digital...
After our work at the NWP Annual Meeting in Orlando, the MAP Committee met in Davis, California in February 2011. Our goals were to review our overall assessment framework in light of feedback we've received and to reflect on the implications of design in tools like rubrics and graphic representations.  What do different designs signal about what is valued in an assessment context and how threads...
