Re-imagining #Schooling: School as an Affinity Space for #21stcentury Through a #Multiliteracies Lens | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

Author: Stephania Savva  


The core of this chapter reports on the development, implementation and evaluation of a theory based framework named Affinity Multiliteracies Practice (AMP) with the intention to provide an example of a teaching and learning approach to schooling that acknowledges students’ multiple and diverse identities, experiences and capabilities while also equipping them to become the flexible and dynamic learners required in the 21st century.

10 Lesson Plans to Develop Digital Literacies

10 Lesson Plans to Develop Digital Literacies | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

Over the last few months I have been working hard to develop a set of commercially available lesson materials. These lesson plans aren't specifically designed for English language learners, though they will be useful for students at higher levels who want stimulating skills based practice or for any teacher interested in developing a CLIL or content based approach to language learning. They were designed to enable any teacher to develop students in a way that is more closely aligned to the kinds of skills they will need to function effectively and critically in the digital world.

"It seems that the days of the Socratic teacher are fast fading. The digital world gives everyone an opportunity to find his or her own expert, not necessarily in the classroom. The Internet and other digital resources provide students and teachers with the means to reach out to the world and extract the information that they find most interesting, whatever it may be."
