Evangelos Intzidis, Disposition in Pedagogy: Time - Images from non-printed text (film) to printed text in the classroom

The New Literacy Studies emphasize on the multimodal landscape of communication in the classroom. The design of meaning is based on different modes (language, image, space etc). We are examining the pedagogical applications of an assemblage of film time images and multimodal narrative texts towards an emancipation of pupils in primary school. The pupils learn how to design their own dispositions in reading literature and film. From this perspective design is becoming the meaning by the creation of rhizomes through images, sounds and texts.
