Abstract
Abstract Identity texts in written, spoken, visual, musical and combinations in multimodal from created by students in culturally and linguistically diverse class rooms are shared with multiple audiences viz. peers, parents teachers etc for positive feedback. Presentation and discussion vis-a-vis transmission social constructivist and transformative approaches to pedagogy result in the affirmation of self in interactions with multiple audiences. In order to address three main influences on education systems viz. linguistic and cultural diversity in the wake of population escalation, recognition of English as the language of economic and social advancement and technological developments facilitating change of global economy from Industrial age to Information age, teachers create interpersonal space for maximum academic development by ensuring optimal cognitive engagement and optimal identity investment on the part of students. Way back in 1996 to be precise, The New London Group advocated the need to formulate a new pedagogy to serve as literacy pedagogy in tune with the latest contexts of communication and learning viz. linguistic and cultural diversity in the wake of greater population mobility, recognition of English as key to economic and social advancement and technological advancements ushering in Information Age economy. The multimodal and multilingualthe two dimensions of literacies grew in significance. A new pedagogy of multiliteracies was mooted to address the experience of meaning making for negotiating discourse differences. In media and cultural practices, meaning making was conceived as a form of design or active and dynamic transformation of the social world and its multimodal contemporary forms in which the different modes of meaning viz. the linguistic, the visual, the audio, the gestural and the spatial were integrated. Pedagogy of Multiliteracies envisages pedagogical moves viz. Situated Practice, Overt Instruction, Critical Framing and Transformed Practice.
