Multimodality and Early Childhood - ECED886

This unit explores multimodality – the role of images and their interaction with language and other modes of communication – in early childhood. The initial focus is on visual representations of children and childhood in advertising, marketing and popular culture. This equips students with a variety of critical concepts and provides a context for analysing relations between different modes in multimodal texts and environments for children, including interactive and traditional picture books, e-games, websites, apps, toys and toy stores, educational policy documents, museums, and early childhood settings.
