After more than seven years of conceptual development, the ECML training and consultancy team “A pluriliteracies approach to teaching for learning” revised and fully animated their model of Pluriliteracies Teaching for Deeper Learning. This video is now available on the ECML website.
The model offers a holistic view of integration that transcends the issue of content vs. language. The video highlights that deeper learning and personal growth only occur when all the four dimensions of the model are active simultaneously:
- (Co-) constructing knowledge
- Demonstrating understanding
- Learner mindset
- Mentoring learning
The approach suggests that these dimensions come together when school subjects are taught as disciplines (in terms of how knowledge is constructed and communicated) and when learner needs are met by teachers (through generating and sustaining engagement and by mentoring learning and personal growth).
ECML member states requesting training and consultancy for “A pluriliteracies approach to teaching for learning” can explore this approach in the context of their specific learning and teaching environments.
