Spring is here!
Well, it has certainly warmed up in Sunny Queensland. Things have also been really busy with lots of data collection in schools with teachers and students as well as in community hubs. Our students are also on their professional experience. It is great to hear how they are going and how they are implementing learnt strategies in their classroom spaces. On the research front my two books finally reached me in hard copy. This is always a great feeling - actually touching the final product ;) I am working on a few different papers at the moment - all about the importance of different forms of literacy including in the arts. I really like analysing diverse texts - especially the wonderful work that students do in schools. They all work really hard to effectively communicate meaning through a range of modes. I will be presenting some of this research at the International Multimodal Conference in Auckland, New Zealand in early December. I might see you there! :)
