Event Details: Pedagogy of Social Imagination in Language Learning/Teaching Symposium
Description: Using the idea of internal contradictions as guiding principle of empirical research and the theory of expansive learning (Engeström, 1988), the PSILLT project focuses on a multidimensional analysis of language learning/teaching.
Through the use of multiple voices, represented in four case studies, the learning of teacher candidates (Case 1), of classroom teachers (Case 2), of children (Case 3), and, finally, of members of the interdisciplinary team of researchers (Case 4) and, using a constellation of activity systems as a unit of analysis, the symposium aims to address a collective understanding of how to work effectively with elementary school emergent (Chinese/English and Spanish/English) bilinguals.
