This article aims to promote understanding of hypermedia literacy by investigating some of its genres, sign systems, and cueing systems. Increased knowledge of this complex literacy will help educators plan curriculum and evaluate student progress. The analysis is based on a microethnographic study that investigated hypermedia composition in a seventh-grade language arts classroom, extending findings from an earlier exploratory study of 12- and 13-year-old students who designed a school website.

It is suggested that hypermedia literacy requires the ability to orchestrate and transmediate among oral, print, visual, computer, and hypertext literacies. While creating an online magazine, the students in this study gained familiarity with webzine and hypertext fiction genres while also advancing their knowledge of the roles that elements such as text, graphics, photography, and icons play in the hypermedia environment.
