ML2 – Second Language Literacies

A blog for the Second Language Literacies course from the MA in Learning and Teaching Processes in Second Languages (ML2) at UPB-Medellín

Multiliteracy and Multimodality at the University Luis Amigó

In our “new communicational world” as mentioned by Kress Gunther there have been “changes in the domain of meaning, in representation and in semiotic production, in dissemination and distribution of messages and meanings”. These changes have caused a shift, among others, “from the dominance of the mode of writing, to the mode of image”. To talk about these changes we cannot before mention the implication these modes have had in the way we conceive Literacy education. This new look at this topic has been named for some academics as New Literacies.
