ProQuest Document View - A study on the impact of an Expressive Arts Elementary School: Perceptions of former students and their parents

Dissertation. this study was to examine and analyze reports of 24 former elementary students (presently in junior high) and their parents regarding the impact of the arts integrated curriculum delivery they experienced. This public elementary school, in a Midwestern city of 95,000, is close to museums/galleries, concert halls, two private colleges, and university music/art departments. The 'Expressive Arts School Model' incorporates: (a) creative language arts writing and literature program, (b) additional time scheduled for art and music integration classes and teacher collaboration, (c) enrichment classes in the arts before/after school, and (d) artists-in-residence program and museum/concert field studies. Instructional goals implement critical thinking skills, multiple intelligences, transmediation, and recognition of students' unique cultural and individual backgrounds. Ethnographic interviews, field notes, prolonged classroom observation, and artifacts collection, provided multiple methods of data collection as triangulation strategy for analysis/confirmation of findings. Findings were: (a) the motivational power of arts, (b) fostering creativity and appreciation, (c) use of multiple intelligences, (d) use of critical thinking skills, (e) use of transmediation, (f) connective/affective/emotive power of arts, and (g) extended influence of cultural diversity in the arts integrated school program. Due to a lack of teacher, student, and parent responses on the impact of arts integrated school programs in progress for a decade or more, the positive and lasting impact reported by these participants will provide valuable information to guide educational leaders, policy makers, schools, and communities seeking to renew and/or construct successful arts integrated curriculum.

Researching multimodal texts: Applying a dynamic model -Susan Clancy & Tom Lowrie

Researching multimodal texts: Applying a dynamic model -Susan Clancy & Tom Lowrie | Transmediation | Scoop.it

The arrival of the digital age requires new approaches to understand the literacies used in making meanings from mutimodal communications, and a rethinking of the ways in which research into these areas can be used to support learners in the 21st century. This presentation examines the range of literacies children have developed and used to make meanings when engaged with popular culture multimodal texts. The study encouraged children to share their experiences about texts that are generally marginalised within the traditional school culture, but that are part of children's everyday experiences. The Pokemon phenomena was used for investigation in this particular study. A model based around the multiliteracy elements identified by The New London Group (2000) has been developed to show the specific ways children use these elements to construct meanings across multimodal texts. This work has profound implications for educators who want to support children in their development of literacy abilities for life in contemporary society.

Quilts of Authorship - Kari Lynn Witers, Ph.D

Quilts of Authorship - Kari Lynn Witers, Ph.D | Transmediation | Scoop.it
This literature review and narrative vignette draw on Social Symbolic Mediation, Social Semiotics, and Discursive Positioning theories to explore a theoretical model I call Authorship as Assemblage. Specifically, this paper challenges linear pathways to meaning-making by comparing authorship to quilt-making. Quilts afford unique arrangements of assemblage, including the capacity to embed, layer, interweave, and hybridize material. Here, I argue educators need to re-evaluate linear notions of literacy paths in today’s participatory culture.

Education remix: New media, literacies, and the emerging digital geographies - Digital Culture & Education

Education remix: New media, literacies, and the emerging digital geographies - Digital Culture & Education | Transmediation | Scoop.it

This article explores instances of youth educating themselves beyond the boundaries of school through engagement with and production of “digital geographies,” or the emerging landscapes that are being produced through the confluence of new communicative practices and available media and technologies. A framework of digital geographies, which is grounded in theories of spatiality, literacies, and multimodality, is used to analyze the social media practices and multimedia artifacts produced by two court-involved youth, who are part of an ongoing, multi-year ethnography of an alternative to incarceration program. Attention to digital geographies, and attendant communicative practices, can yield important insights about education beyond the school walls. The conclusion addresses the implications of this research for meaningful educational contexts for adolescents’ literacies and how learning might be conceptualized and designed within school.

Language Arts, Vol. 86, No. 2, November 2008/Finding the Right Words: Art Conversations and Poetry | Transmediation | Scoop.it

Abstract: Generative thinking is explored in this article by chronicling the development of middle school English language learners’ poetry writing through their interaction with visual art. The author explains how art conversations (Reilly & Cohen, 2008) were used to help students engage in dialogue about the topic of journeys and how students’ paintings were then used as a starting point for poetry writing. Drawing on research from Christine Leland and Jerome Harste (1994), Shirley Brice Heath (2000), David Perkins (1994), and Eliot Eisner (2001, 2002) the author advocates for transmediated instruction as a means for enhancing students’ thinking.

Exley, Beryl E. (2006) Transmediation in the Middle Years: Integrating picture books & process drama activities to enhance students' engagement with multimodal text.

 

Link to full text.

 

Abstract: This paper considers the efficacy of integrating picture books resources & process
drama activities to enhance middle years students’ engagement with multimodal text.
While picture books & role play have not traditionally been seen as sophisticated
resources & strategies for young adolescents, this paper suggests that they have
much utility for engaging middle years students as code breakers, text participants,
text users & text analysts (Luke & Freebody, 2000) of written, visual, oral & gestural
texts. This paper involves readers in exploring the sophistication of picture book
resources for young adolescents & working through a range of process drama
activities. The workshop activities are based on the John Marsden & Shaun Tan
(2003) allegory of colonisation, ‘The Rabbits’. Specifically, ‘attribute lists’,
‘sculptures’, ‘transformations’, ‘freeze frames’ & ‘conscious alley’ activities will be
introduced & analysed in terms of the literacy practice demands they make of middle
years students.
