Globalization and emerging technologies are changing the world. The concept of ＂multiple literacies＂ has broadened the traditional definition of the term ＂literacy＂ to meet multiple new needs in modern life. The goal of multiple literacies is to extend the concept of learning, emphasizing cross-cultural skills and technology use in societies with various cultures and languages. Accordingly, textbooks are critical in teaching and their design and format continue to undergo change. However, research indicates that traditional textbooks are text- and expert- oriented, characteristics that hinder critical skills students need today. Using theoretical analysis, this article discusses＂The Future Teacher Project＂, an example of iEARN (International Educational and Resource Network) project in which Taiwanese teachers and students interacted with Palestinian teachers and students through the iEARN online collaboration platform, showing that new online learning materials can be multimodal and effective; knowledge in learning materials can be reconstructed by learners by communicating with international peers; and these constructive learning experiences can promote intercultural understanding as an innovative path to enhance teaching and learning.
