Places and Spaces for Multimodal Writing in ‘One-to-One’ Computing
2015 (English)In: Multimodality in Writing: The State of the Art in Theory, Methodology and Pedagogy / [ed] Arlene Archer & Esther Breuer, Leiden & Boston: Brill Academic Publishers, 2015, 204-230 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
In ‘one-to-one’ computing, schools provide learners with individual laptops. This chapter presents an analysis of how such laptops are used for writing and text creation by students in two secondary schools. The chapter is framed by a theoretical interest in the interconnections between uses of ‘one-to-one’ laptops in physical places, the virtual spaces they may ‘open up’, and their uses for performing semiotic actions. The results point to differences and possible inequalities in terms of how students perceive and use the semiotic potentials of the laptops as a means for engaging with and acting on the world through writing in combination with other semiotic modes.
