Knowledge Making in the Classroom: Tracking Learning in Students' Multimodal Texts (Hardback)Shirley Palframan (author)
Hardback 224 Pages / Published: 30/04/2009
- Out of stock
This book is the first to foreground issues of learning and assessment in relation to multimodality - the variety of ways students experience communication outside of school, for example, interactive websites and chat rooms. It explores the use of social semiotic theories in interpreting evidence of learning across the modes: visual texts, writing, speech and gesture. Using examples from secondary science and history it shows how particular students responded to what they were taught, and how they re-constructed curriculum knowledge in line with their own experiences and interest; in short, how they learnt. This book demonstrates a new methodology for identifying and interpreting evidence of learning in students' multimodal texts. Here, students' responses are juxtaposed with teaching input in such a way that representational choices are made explicit and the transformation of knowledge clearly visible. Anyone concerned with the exciting possibilities that multimodal approaches offer in the classroom will find this book fascinating reading.
