The Image in English Language Teaching
I'm involved in a community of practice called the Visual Arts Circle, a group of educators, publishers, artists and designers interested in the visual arts in TEFL/ELT or any language teaching, for that matter.
We're excited to announce our first publication of the Visual Arts Circle in collaboration with the ELT Council. ‘The Image in English Language Teaching’ is a book edited by Kieran Donaghy and Daniel Xerri that features contributions by leading experts in the use of images in language education such as Ben Goldstein, Anna Whitcher, Antonia Clare, Paul Driver, Sylvia Karasthati, Paul Dummett, Magdalena Wasilewska, Andreia Zakime,Elena Domínguez Romero, Jelena Bobkina, Candy Fresacher, Tyson Seburn, Chrysa Papalazarou, Magdalena Brzezinska, Samantha Lewis, Jean Theuma, Valéria Benévolo França and myself.
The book includes a preface by Gunther Kress, Professor of Semiotics and Education in the Department of Culture, Communication and Media Within the Institute of Education of University College London.
And yippee!! You can access it for free thanks to the generous support of the ELT Council. You can download the book by clicking on the following link:
