Information and communication technology (ICT) capability

There is a particular focus in English Literary Studies on ICT through the use of digital and multimodal texts, and on understanding and creating multimodal texts. For example, students explore the effects of sound and image as they consider how ideas are communicated in digital and multimodal texts. They use digital technologies when they access, manage and use information and when they create their own texts, including texts in multimodal form. They develop skills in reading, viewing, and responding to digital and multimodal texts, and analysing the effects of the use of different mediums on meaning and interpretation.
