Professor Kathy Mills is implementing an ARC Future Fellowship to advance new models of sensory orchestration to develop the multimodal and digital literacy learning of primary students.
This project aims to advance new learning and pedagogical models of sensory orchestration—the senses working together—for the multimodal and digital literacy learning of primary students.
It develops students’ sensory literacies with touch-screens and novel technologies, such as virtual and augmented reality, to inform theory, practice, and policy for the education, arts, and community sectors.
