  1. I was doing some reading today relating to multiliteracies pedagogy and i thought this quote was rather fitting. As educators it is easy to get caught up in teaching the how and to loose focus on the why (Anstey & Bull, 2006). A fitting question to ask is when digital tools are superseded what knowledge will be left in our students’ minds? Explicit instruction is needed to navigate new modes of digital expression but this must not be the sole or indeed the dominant purpose of the learning goals.
