Step away from traditional writing tasks to open up a world of possibilities for students to hone their reading, writing and oral communication skills through digital media projects. As technology advances, it is becoming increasingly important for students to be able to make and share meaning in different modes and formats; to create, collaborate and communicate effectively.
