Writing with Images in the Digital Age

Writing with Images in the Digital Age | Links for Units of Inquiry in PYP | Scoop.it
As text and image converge and blend, complement or replace one another, and become something new, our ways of reading and writing and studying have become transformed as well. If we want to help our students become effective communicators, that is, effective users and producers of image-texts, we need to understand these media from the inside out and become better users and producers ourselves.
