Abstract


The concept of multimodal text dominates the English learning area in the Australian Curriculum. Multimodal text is defined in the Australian Curriculum as a combination of two or more communication modes (for example, print, image and spoken text, as in film or computer presentations). Adobe has a wide range of multimodal solutions that are regularly used by educators and students globally to enhance the education process. Examples include Adobe InDesign, a range of Adobe Photoshop solutions, Acrobat Pro, Adobe Voice, Adobe Clip, Adobe Slate, Premiere Elements, Premiere Pro, Adobe Presenter, Edge Animate, Adobe Muse and others.  This presentation (by Dr Tim Kitchen who after over 20 years as a classroom teacher in primary, secondary & Higher Ed is now Adobe’s Senior Education Specialist for Asia Pacific) looks at a few of these tools and how they can be used to enhance creativity in the learning & teaching process.
