Week 1: January 12–19, 2009

Theme: What is/are Multiliteracies?


This week gathers the participants into a distributed learning network that overlaps with other similar networks. Several  essential frameworks underpinning multiliteracies will be discussed, and these frameworks will be applied to models of how this course might function (more as a seminar in which knowledge is built through connecting and sharing, as opposed to a course in which the learning paths have been prescribed). Many tools which participants can use to foster connections with one another will be introduced. The materials and tools can be sampled and trialed as needed; there is no need to do everything suggested here. Participants are encouraged to keep blogs or wikis to record their progress through the course; discoveries and ways of sharing knowledge with one another will also be touched on.
