Abstract: 
This paper evaluates a pilot design research intervention of 12-13 year old Secondary (Middle)
students in Singapore constructing a virtual museum within an English Language (EL)
curriculum which seeks to engage students through the infusion of authentic, rich multimodal
stimuli. 78 students from two classes designed the layout of museum galleries based on their
chosen themes, sourced and created multimodal artifacts, and presented their proposals and
galleries to an imagined external audience and their peers. The research design and methodology,
processes and factors driving the design and implementation of the project are described.
Feedback from teachers and students on the benefits and limitations of the study are elicited
through semi-structured interviews, survey and questionnaire forms. Recommendations to
overcome problems identified are proposed.
