Digital Literature as a Tool for (Foreign) Language Learning: Collaboration, Creativity, Transliteracy - LRDG Seminar

Date: 16 June 2009 Time: 1.00 - 2.00 pm

In this talk I aim to show a cross-section of research and teaching methods investigating and implementing digital literature (mostly fiction and poetry) in the (foreign) language classroom. Approaches range from 'traditional' hypertext and hypermedia to interactive multimedia and ludic texts, and I shall examine how networked literary and multimodal creativity at school and university level may contribute towards the development of communicative competence and confidence, transliteracy, rhetorical and collaborative skills as well as higher levels of critical/analytical awareness with respect to stylistic, intertextual and multimodal features. In particular, I shall look at the Leeds Hypertext Project, Kids on the Net, Southwold Online, and the Inanimate Alice Pedagogy Project.
