Reading visual and multimodal texts : How is 'reading' different?
Walsh, Maureen. (2005). Reading visual and multimodal texts : How is 'reading' different? ALEA Conference 2004. University of New England, Armidale, New South Wales, Australia 24 - 27 Nov 2004 Armidale, New South Wales: Australian Literacy Educators' Association. pp. 1-13
This paper examines the differences between reading print-based texts and multimodal texts within the context of changed literacy practices. The author closely analyses aspects of a novel, a picture book and an internet site to determine the similarities and differences in the way readers would process each text. The ‘affordances’ of modes are considered in relation to a text’s purpose and meaning-making involved.
