Creativity, Mind and Emotions: Enhancing Multi-literacy Skills in the ELT Class

Abstract

A multiliterate approach goes beyond writing and speaking skills, and include non-linguistic representations and ways of communicating that may be extended beyond standard abilities. This presentation aims at sharing with the audience a different perspective from traditional strategies, by combining TBI (Task-Based Instruction) activities- based on the language required to perform specific tasks- together with a genuine interest on the students´ aptitudes and skills, thus opening the door to creativity, emotions and content in our classroom.
