Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


This visual essay is a documentation of an art based learning project generated by researcher-teacher collaboration in basic education.  The project’s educational stance was informed by multimodal learning theory and the art-based approach was formed by the possibilities and challenges of one-to-one computing (1:1 computing) in basic education.

The aim of the essay is to articulate understanding on how a blended learning environment is performed as multi literacy learning. Furthermore the essay discusses how a blended learning environment forms teacher’s critical thinking on teaching arts in basic education practice.
