A MULTIMODAL AND BLENDED APPROACH TO LANGUAGE LEARNING

P.F. Kwah

National Institute of Education (SINGAPORE)
This presentation will describe and show how the use of a multimodal and blended approach to language learning could help prepare students for the skills necessary for the twenty-first century in representing, constructing and disseminating of knowledge in the digital age. The multimodal and blended approach in creating digital stories will meaningfully integrate face-to-face classroom instructional scaffolding and technology based learning in the process of producing different learning outcomes such as writing the story to narrating and creating and sharing digital stories using ICT tools audacity, movie maker, and wiki. Digital storytelling enables the integration of both verbal and multimedia texts as creating digital stories involves “weaving images, music, narrative and voice together, thereby giving deep dimensions and vivid colour to characters, situations, experiences, and insights” as defined by Leslie Rule from the Digital Storytelling Association. Through this multimodal and blended approach to language learning, learners will not only be able to develop their language skills but also to bridge their learning experiences to the kind of multiliteracies necessary for the digital age.
