Technologies in Literacy Learning: A Case Study

E-Learning and Digital Media Volume 7, Number 3, ISSN 2042-7530


This article draws on outcomes of a study which explored changes in teachers' literacy pedagogies as a result of their participation in a collaborative teacher professional learning project. The educational usability of schemas drawn from multiliteracies and Learning by Design theory is illustrated through a case study of a teacher's work on website exploration and design with 8- to 11-year-olds. The teacher sought to develop pedagogical responses which were cognisant of multimodal shifts resulting from an increasingly digitised, networked communications environment. Engagement with the schemas influenced the teacher's print-based literacy pedagogies to incorporate multimodal literacy practices. (Contains 3 tables.)
