Narrative Song Writing in a Digital Context

S. Sustenance

Kanda University of International Studies, Japan

This presentation will introduce a narrative song writing unit used in a first-year English reading and writing course at a Japanese university. The multiliteracies approach (New London Group, 1996), iPad applications, and online resources are combined to take students on a digital journey of transformation and transduction (Kress, 2003). The unit culminates with the creation of a personal music video that communicates an original fictional narrative through a combination of four different modes (written text, music, still images, and video) in a way that would have been impossible even ten years ago.
