BENGTSSON, Astrid. Multimodalidad e interactividad en algunas formas de contar la ciencia. Cuad. Cent. Estud. Diseñ. Comun., Ensayos [online]. 2020, n.89, pp.68-91. ISSN 1853-3523.

The multimodal approach focuses on how people give meaning to the world around them through the various semiotic modes and available resources, and that is why this approach is especially interesting when thinking about learning -in general- and communicating science and technology -in particular-. As a theoretical perspective, it analyzes the interaction between resources and socially organized semiotic modes to which people appeal in meaning making, such as writing, image, sound, gaze, tone of voice, gestures, 3D shapes, etc. This approach also considers the influence of various media (such as digital or analog), creating a particular context of meaning in a particular descriptive and analytical domain. On the other hand, for more than three decades it has been argued that museums and science and technology centers are among the best proposals for scientific communication, given their interactive and participative offer.

In this work we propose a reflection about the potential of these museums and centers, specifically the interactive ones, analyzing their contributions to approaches such as multimodality and embodied learning.
