  3. 3. Situating „new‟ literacies The word literacies in new literacies signaled a shift in thinking about the ways that people make meaning with the language. Thinking about literacy as a universalized, autonomous entity undermines its diversity and multiple uses and understandings.
  4. 4. Multiliteracies, multimodalities andnew literacies Literacies are multiple and demand different modes Modes are regularized sets of resources for During the process of meaning meaning making we use “semiotic making. resources”, which are things, artifacts, practices used to complete the task in a competent, apt way (Kress, 1997)
  5. 5.  MULTIMODALITY: is the field that takes account of how individuals make meaning with different kinds of modes. MULTILITERACIES: is a pedagogy developed to give us tools to understand how we make meaning through different modes.
  6. 6. DIGITAL LITERACIES “enables us to match the medium we use to the kind of information that we are presenting and to the audience we are presenting it to” (Lanhan, 1995:3) Becoming Digital literate means the mastering of multiple Discourses (GEE, 1996; 1999) Digital readers and writers need to have critical eye of different genres and a meta-awareness of these texts as promoting or silencing particular views.
  7. 7.

  9. 9.  PAPER-BASED TEXTS:  Written language is primarily a linear, sequential process SCREEN-BASED TEXTS:  Entailsthe reading and writing of text with images that are usually not presented in a left-to-right, linear format.
  10. 10.  READING on screen involves various aspects of online processing that includes responding to animated icons, hypertext, sound effects; and navigating pathways between and within screens
  11. 11.  WRITER as a PRODUCER: by designing and processing a text that combines images and graphics with written text as well as sound and movement on screen
  12. 12.  Students need to understand the meaning-making potential of different modes, particularly the relationship between words and images, in reading, writing and producing multimodal texts.
