Last week I wrote about the importance of balance between traditional and multimodal texts. This weeks post continues this discussion but focuses on the importance of balance between consuming digital texts and creating your own digital text.
It is vital that students are given the opportunity to consume text (books, websites, songs, film, ebooks, spoken) and also create text. When we think about 21st century learning and the implications of this for our students, it is vital that we are encouraging our students to operate at all levels of thinking… from remembering to creating (Blooms Taxonomy).
