Multiple Literacies Theory: Exploring Futures
Masny, Diana
Policy Futures in Education, v9 n4 p494-504 2011
This article focuses on the contributions of philosophy, art and science to education through the conceptual, theoretical, and methodological usefulness of a Deleuze-Guattarian conceptual framework that informs multiple literacies theory (MLT). Education lends itself to Deleuze's notion of connecting and creating through philosophy, art and science. How do they come together and connect in education and with MLT? Accordingly the first part focuses on some key concepts related to MLT. The second part presents MLT. The third part centres on vignettes from a two-year study involving multilingual children acquiring multiple writing systems simultaneously. The fourth part brings together possible lines of flight as rhizomatic connections in order to consider what MLT offers as a concept for educational future. (Contains 7 notes and 3 figures.)
