Multimodal literacy is central to the Australian Curriculum and international research, yet research and education largely prioritise visual texts. Visual skills alone are insufficient for the digital future. This project generates pedagogical and learning models to optimise students’ broadened use of the senses in multimodal and digital literacy learning. It develops new sensory literacy programs with primary schools, community organisations, and art museums. The project builds an evidence base for students to become critical users of sensory techniques to communicate through digital, virtual, and augmented-reality texts — skillsets that sustain digital and workforce participation.
