Mobilising multiliteracies: pedagogy for mobile students

Henderson, Robyn (2008) Mobilising multiliteracies: pedagogy for mobile students. In: Multiliteracies and diversity in education: new pedagogies for expanding landscapes. Oxford University Press, Melbourne, Vic, Australia, pp. 168-200. ISBN 978-0-19-555848-7


By building on the Multiliteracies work of The New London Group (1996) and the Learning by Design framework described by Kalantzis, Cope and the Learning by Design Project Group (see Kalantzis & Cope, 2004; Kalantzis, Cope, & the Learning by Design Project Group, 2005), this chapter considers the challenging task of designing literacy curriculum and instigating literacy pedagogy for students who are, or have been, mobile. I begin this chapter by briefly exploring two fields: literacy learning and mobility. I then explore the potential of a problem-based multiliteracies project that focuses on the water shortage that is currently being experienced in Australia, and consider how the project might enhance learning and engage learners, both permanent (residentially-stable) school/class members and those who are attending temporarily.
