What do I get from MultiLEAP as a researcher?

Education is in key position to provide pupils and students with a large repertoire of multimodal and multilingual resources to cope in societal activities now and in the future.

Anne Pitkänen-Huhta, Department of Language and Communication Studies

Multiliteracies approach in education means helping learners recognize and skilfully use the multiplicity of modes of meaning making as resources in knowledge building and display.

Tarja Nikula-Jäntti, Centre for Applied Language Studies

Becoming literate in this century is about navigating in multimodal text environments and thinking critically and ethically. Therefore, learning multiliteracy is e.g., examining problems, collaborating to solve them creatively, gathering information from multiple sources, and working productively with linguistic and cultural diversity.

Mirja Tarnanen, Department of Teacher Education

A multiliterate person has knowledge and skills for “reading” texts, technologies, contexts, situations, and others. She has the competence to interpret and adapt her behavior according to her and situational goals, in an ethical way.

Tomi Laapotti, Department of Language and Communication Studies
