Digital and Multimodal texts in the classroom

The syllabus is explicit in the need for students to not only “read” and respond to digital and multimodal texts but also to be given opportunities to create their own. What are digital and multimodal texts? Where can they find them to use with their students? What tools are available for student to use to create their own texts (websites, picture books, films, animations etc) and how have other teachers been leading the way in this area?
