Formatted abstract
This sensory ethnography explores the affordances and constraints of multimodal design to represent emotions and appraisal associated with experiencing local places. Digital video production, walking with the camera, and the use of a think-aloud protocol to reflect on the videos, provided an opportunity for the primary school children to represent their emotions and appraisal of places multimodally. Applying a typology from Martin and White’s (2005) framework for the Language of Evaluation, children’s multimodal emotional responses to places in this study tended toward happiness, security, and satisfaction. The findings demonstrate an explicit connection between children’s emotions in response to local places through video, while highlighting the potential for teachers to use digital filmmaking to allow children to reflect actively on their placed experiences and represent their emotional reactions to places through multiple modes.
