Multiple transactions, multiple expressions : using process drama to create authentic learning experiences Mui, Selina


Both social interactions with others and physical experiences with the environment shape learning. Children communicate naturally through multimodal means and need authentic multimodal learning experiences to enrich their insight and understanding. Guided through multimodal experiences, process drama encourages children to explore various perspectives and challenge preconceived assumptions and perceptions. The disconnect between home and school environments, transmediation, and the connection between process drama and literacy are explored in the literature review. A process drama focusing on water consumption will challenge students to explore different perspectives and create multimodal texts to display their awareness and insight of the larger theme, global citizenship.
