Abstract: Multiliteracies refers to skills and strategies that go beyond being able to read and write. Multiliteracies can help learners and teachers understand that literacy is dynamic in nature. This understanding allows for critical and strategic thinking, and the development of metacognitive skills. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to highlight the role of multiliteracies in English language teaching, since the information and communication technologies are changing the face of education. This article provides crucial information and critical updates for those aiming to understand the development of multiliteracies. The author argues for a move from the traditional print-based approach of learning towards pedagogical practice that includes print, nonprint, visual and digital materials. In particular, this article focuses on the importance of multiliteracies in English classrooms and discusses the roles of teachers in terms of the knowledge and skills needed to prepare students for active participation in today's world. This article then presents recent studies that have dealt with integrating multiliteracies and provides common themes emerging from those studies. Finally, the author concludes with recommendations for teachers on literacy, technology, and multiliteracies issues.
