Developing Visual Literacy in the language classroom
In a world where the vast majority of texts our students are encountering and dealing with are visual texts or multimodal texts that use visuals, the importance of visual literacy increases greatly. In this practical webinar, Kieran Donaghy explores what visual literacy is, why it is important in language education and explore a number of simple, tried and tested viewing frameworks that help students become more active and effective viewers of photo, paintings, films and videos, using examples from the course Kieran co-authored, Language Hub.
