Multiliteracies and Multimodality Around our Classrooms

By Shirley Correa

This video shows the way two English courses at Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana in Bucaramanga benefit from Multimodality as a means to make meaning with the target language and interpret the world from a critical point of view.

    Dear Shirley,
    Thanks for making a video like this. You show you really grasped the theoretical framework of multiliteracies and multimodality. I quite liked the organization of your ideas. Regarding literacy, I have asked some L1 teachers about this field and they have no idea of what it is. I think it is time to do something to foster literacy, new literacies, multiliteracies, multimodality in our education system.

    Best Regards, Adriana Teresa Rozo Carvajal.

    Hello Shirley, I must say I really enjoyed your video from a aesthetic point of view; also, in a communicative sense I think it is very well made, for with a few text and images you show the main concepts and explain how they are developed in your place of work, UPB Bucaramanga. Congratulations on a great video.
