Reflexiones sobre una investigación acerca del alfabetismo visual: El papel de la imagen en la educación adulta.

Palabras clave: Alfabetización visual, educación adulta, metodologías de enseñanza, enseñanza de inglés, la imagen como medio de comunicación

Resumen

Tradicionalmente, la imagen ha sido considerada útil en la enseñanza de lenguas. Hoy, educadores alrededor del mundo superan barreras culturales gracias a Google, YouTube, iPhones, cómics y muchas otras plataformas, a través de las cuales las fotografías, las ilustraciones y los videos contribuyen a darle significado a las palabras. Este artículo expone reflexiones originadas en mi estudio doctoral sobre la conceptualización de la alfabetización visual en la enseñanza del inglés para adultos. Se investiga qué entienden los profesores participantes como alfabetismo visual, el papel que le atribuyen a la imagen en sus pedagogías y los diferentes usos que le dan, basados en sus principios y experiencias. Los resultados indican que el uso de la imagen como soporte al texto escrito limita su validez como medio de comunicación en sí, relegándola a una posición secundaria. Al parecer, en esta área de la educación se enseña «con imágenes» y no «sobre imágenes».
