Abstract: MUSE (Museum-based Multimodal Learning Initiative) aimed to show the viability of designing an innovative technologically enhanced learning environment to enhance students' multimodal meaning-making in the English Language curriculum. The study involved secondary school students in designing and constructing a virtual museum using virtual and augmented reality to represent their personal and cultural identity. Findings indicated signs of students' emergent multimodal awareness with a growing sensitivity to semiotic affordances and constraints in addition to collaborative learning skills and language learning motivational gains. The investigation identified adaptive measures in overcoming challenges from contextual constraints as well as pedagogical implications for new literacies in digitally mediated contexts.
Description: This brief was based on the project OER 26/08 CH: Engagement, Expression and Embodiment: Bridging Multimodal Literacies and Language Arts Through Constructing an Interactive Virtual Museum.
