A Pedagogy of multiliteracies in the early years of schooling

Hesterman, S.ORCID: 0000-0001-7491-5527 (2017) A Pedagogy of multiliteracies in the early years of schooling. In: Early Years in Education Society (EYES) Annual Conference 2017: Let's Talk About It, 19 - 20 May 2017, Pan Pacific Hotel, Perth.


The term ‘multiliteracies’ embraces the notion that there are multiple modes of representation that communicate meaning much broader than language alone. Participation in 21st-century technological life-worlds requires a flexible repertoire of visual, aural, gestural, spatial, tactile, and linguistic (oral and written) understandings to design and communicate a wide range of text types. This session examines how teachers can accommodate cultural and linguistic diversity through a pedagogy of multiliteracies to promote a classroom culture of creativity and innovation
