Le forme della multimodalità. Segni, gesti e parole in classe.

Risultato della ricerca: Conference contribution


Human communication is a complex and multimodal event: in face-to-face interaction, most of the meaning is conveyed through the non-verbal channel. This aspect is crucial in the educational relationship and in classroom teaching.The present contribution therefore intends to deepen the notion of multimodality in its different forms by exploring what happens in vocal languages (in which the vocal acoustical channel is used) and in Sign Languages (in which the visual-gestural channel is used) . First, the concept of multimodality in language is defined by referring to gesture studies on the one hand and embodied cognition on the other, for demonstrating how it constitutes a basic feature of human communication. Secondly, a pedagogical reflection is conducted on the need for greater awareness by teachers regarding the effects of multimodality in the classroom and on the methodological implications linked to this awareness. The forms of multimodality are finally illustrated through data collected in two different moments in the classroom where deaf and hearing learners are involved
