While traditional writing is typically understood as a language based on the combination of words, phrases, and sentences to communicate meaning, modern technologies have led educators to reevaluate the notion that writing is restricted to this definition.
Exploring Multimodal Composition and Digital Writing investigates the use of digital technologies to create multi-media documents that utilize video, audio, and web-based elements to further written communication beyond what can be accomplished by words alone. Educators, scholars, researchers, and professionals will use this critical resource to explore theoretical and empirical developments in the creation of digital and multimodal documents throughout the education system.

Education and literacy researchers explore multimodal composition and digital writing from the perspectives of conceptualizing and redefining, designing and assessing, K-12 environments, teacher education, and strategies and technologies. Among their topics are conversations with four artists about the writing process and multimodal composition, digital writing and the role of critical pedagogy in pre-service teacher education, the engagement of first grade emergent bilinguals with technology-integrated curricula, writing for social action in the digital age, leveraging multimodality to facilitate the teaching of narrative writing for pre-service teachers, and learning the disciplinary language and literacies of multimedia composition.
