Diana Jaimes V.'s curator insight, September 2, 2017 12:42 PM
This article presents photography as an alternative to teach literacy for English learners. It explains how through pictures students can analyze and read information that is not traditionally text printed; also, since it is a new type of literacy exposure it is probable that student feel less pressured and they will be more participative to express their perspectives and opinions. When the teacher asks students to describe what they read on a picture they are using their prior language as well as practicing their storytelling without the need of using specific vocabulary but the one students feel secure and comfortable with.

Diana Jaimes V.'s curator insight, October 18, 2017 11:50 PM
I am particularly interested in multimodality which is basically the different modes in which we construct meaning. This article presents first the importance and complexity of visual literacy. Visual literacy is approached as one of the most difficult skills to develop since the meaning should be extracted and exposed in a way that is "explicit" for others. The article presents different apps and activities to explore visual literacy (diagnosis and exposure to the complexity) and activities to implement visual literacy, such as extracting meaning from one single image, visual storytelling, among others. All of them can be implemented in a EFL or ESL course.
