Avec le Cadre Européen Commun de Référence pour la Visual Literacy, nous disposons pour la première fois d'une description transnationale et européenne du domaine Visual Literacy. Entre 2014 et 2016, sur la base de recherches empiriques, des didacticiens européens ont élaboré des modèles importants pour les développements futurs : pour la conception de curriculums fondés sur une approche par compétences, pour l'évaluation des résultats d'apprentissages, pour la construction de situations d'enseignement, la formation des professeurs et le développement d'outils et supports pour l'enseignement. Le projet a été mis en ?uvre avec le soutien de l'Union Européenne (www.envil.eu). This publication of the Common European Framework of Reference for Visual Literacy is the first transnational and European description of the area of learning of 'Visual Literacy'. The models and concepts are based on empirical research. They have been developed between 2014 and 2016 by subject specialists across Europe and they are an important instrument for the future development of competency-based curricula, the assessment of learning, the construction of tasks, teacher training, and the development of teaching materials. This project was supported by the European Union (www.envil.eu). Mit dem Gemeinsamen Europäischen Referenzrahmen für Visual Literacy liegt zum ersten Mal eine transnationale, europäische Beschreibung des Lernfelds 'Visual Literacy' vor. Auf der Basis empirischer Forschung haben europäische Fachdidaktiker zwischen 2014 und 2016 die Modelle erstellt, die für die kompetenzorientierte Lehrplanentwicklung, das Überprüfen von Lernergebnissen, das Gestalten von Aufgaben, die Lehrerbildung und bei der Entwicklung von Unterrichtsmaterialien in Zukunft wichtig sind. Das Vorhaben wurde durch die Europäische Union gefördert (www.envil.eu).

Teaching Visual Literacy and Document Design in First year Composition

Given our ability to communicate quickly and effectively through visuals such as signs and pictures, it is not surprising that graphical messages now permeate our technology-oriented culture. Magazines, television, and computers integrate text and graphics to convey information. As teachers of writing, we need to study and understand these visually enhanced texts, because they have become the standard for communication in our society. Beyond this, we should learn how to teach students about visual literacy and document design so that they can effectively interpret these visually enhanced texts and create documents that use visuals and words together; this will also prepare students for college writing and workplace writing. Naturally, there exists some uncertainty surrounding the inclusion of these ideas in first-year composition. First-year writing is already difficult to teach because colleges expect us to foster critical reading, critical thinking, and critical writing skills in students from a wide variety of disciplines. Compounding these challenges are large class sizes and shrinking budgets. However, many scholars assert that visual thinking is an essential part of the learning process and must be included in writing courses.

This volume includes the following topics: best practices for teaching students with social, economic,gender, or ethnic differences adjustments to the teaching and learning process to focus oninclusion strategies for teaching that help learners connect what theyknow with the information presented environments that maximize learners’ academic and socialgrowth.

Educators and administrators canincorporate the techniques of inclusive learning and help learnersretain more information. This is the 141st volume of the quarterly Jossey-Bass highereducation series New Directions for Teaching and Learning.

Literacy in the twenty-first century means more than just reading and writing. Today's students must learn how to interpret and communicate information through a variety of digital and print-based media formats, using imagery, online applications, audio, video, and traditional texts. In Engaging the Eye Generation, library media specialist and National Board Certified Teacher Johanna Riddle draws on twenty-five years of education experience to show teachers how to update the curriculum for twenty-first century learners. Technology neophytes need not despair. Johanna suggests enhancements ranging from low-tech to high-tech and explains how teachers, even those with limited technology skills, can effectively guide students to proficiency. Each chapter--filled with meaningful and motivating activities--thoughtfully explains how to elevate traditional learning and add new layers to students' reading comprehension, critical thinking, and communication skills. Through proven methods and practical examples, teachers will discover how to: · use multiple literacies to weave together standards and disciplines; · identify and apply appropriate tools to ensure relevant information literacy; · integrate information and research skills; and · design rubrics collaboratively with students so all learners can effectively assess the learning process. To help students meet the challenges of a rapidly evolving world, teachers must become comfortable in the twenty-first-century learning community. Engaging the Eye Generation isaccessible, manageable, and inspiring; it will help teachers bridge the generational gap with enthusiasm and savvy. Engaging the Eye Generation takes a fresh approach to infusing twenty-first century skills into the classroom. In addition to practical examples of lessons and units, Johanna shares her own learning process, which will allow the reader to easily adopt the best practices outlined in the book] Her attention to sound pedagogical practices, with an emphasis on both visual and information literacy, will support teachers as they move their students toward the skills they will need to succeed! --Kathy Schrock, Creator of Kathy Schrock's Guide for Educators and Administrator for Technology for the Nauset Public School
