Jasmin (Bey) Cowin publishes The Pedagogy & Language Enrichment Technology Wheel: Multimodal and Multiliteracy Perspectives

The third edition of MOSAIC features articles based on presentations from the 51st Annual Conference as well as two regular articles, one by Yana ShifrinaPiljovin touching on beliefs and issues with heritage language maintenance and another from Margaret Ibrasco describing an activity to foster interaction and collaboration in a virtual speaking class. I am pleased that my The Pedagogy & Language Enrichment Technology Wheel Multimodal and Multiliteracy Perspectives is part of this publication.

New technologies are reshaping educational philosophies and the pedagogies that underlie them as they also transform the modes of delivery within language teachers’ repertoire. However, easy-to-navigate support for teachers planning to connect language pedagogy and enrichment through technology is still developing. This poster hopes to provide some of that needed support as it uses a graphic wheel to illustrate pedagogical and student actions in categories such as presence, accessibility and interactivity defined by aspects of the technology. In the enlcosed PDF document, you will find an embedded clickable Pedagogy & Language Enrichment through Technology Wheel meant to function as practical support for language teachers looking for additional technology resources for language learning enrichment.
