MODE Seminar: Multimodality and new media in English, Media and Drama classrooms
2nd May 2013,
10:00-17:00 at The London Knowledge Lab, 23-29 Emerald Street, London, WC1N 3QS

English, Media and Drama educators increasingly recognise that engagement with cultural forms and young people's creative production involve literacies wider than reading and writing. This seminar and workshop will look at three kinds of text: digital film, computer games and digital animation. It will demonstrate how we can think about them as multimodal forms, demanding multimodal approaches to literacy. Presenters will also demonstrate how games, animation and film can offer new ways to consider narrative, canonical literature such as Shakespeare, and even grammar. They draw on recent research projects with Shakespeare's Globe and the British Film Institute.

This workshop, linked with the DARE project is aimed at teachers and researchers involved in secondary English, Media, Drama, literacy. NATE, UKLA, LATE.
