ALL London and ALL ITET Webinar: Transmedia in Education – New Approaches to Transmedia and Language Pedagogy
January 18 @ 15:00 - 16:00
Transmedia in Education: New Approaches to Transmedia and Language Pedagogy
– a webinar arranged by ALL ITET especially for trainee teachers (but others are welcome)
Monday 18 January from 3-4 pm on Zoom
Taking into account the growing significance of visual cultures in education, especially the increased popularity of streaming services and the video sharing site YouTube since the start of the pandemic, this session will present the project Transmedia in Education: New Approaches to Transmedia and Language Pedagogy. The first part of the session will focus on introducing the visual literacy framework that we use and on presenting some resources for embedding films more systematically in L2 teaching. Our case studies include pedagogical applications for using short film flexibly as part of language classes. The second part of the session brings together the opportunities and affordances derived from the explosion of user-generated online content by prosumers (consumers and creators) working with a mix of non-verbal cultural artefacts (e.g. short films, publicity materials, animation, video games, etc.) to broaden students’ transmedia skills, develop translingual and transcultural competences, and encourage creativity and storytelling skills.
Presenters : Dr Carmen Herrero and Dr Isabelle Vanderschelden, Manchester Metropolitan University
