Abstract

The aim of this article is to introduce a computer-assisted multiliteracies programme (CaMP) as an alternative approach to English as a Foreign Language (EFL) instruction in order to overcome the educational limitations that are inherent in most EFL settings. In a number of monolingual societies with a dominant language other than English, students have had unequal access to authentic English communication opportunities and consequently have a limited understanding of English as American English or native speakers’ English. Although communication technologies have been regarded as a promising solution, the limitations within EFL education have not been fully addressed. In this article, multiliteracies pedagogy is offered as a promising solution enabling students to improve English and both cultural and media literacies. This article provides an in-depth description of effective ways to integrate the multiliteracies pedagogy in EFL instruction and its potential effects on EFL students’ learning experiences.
