Translanguaging, Pedagogy and Creativity

Abstract: This paper focuses on the relationship between creativity and the interactions of plurilingual learners, that is, their translanguaging. We provide a description of the conceptual difference between the concept of plurilingualism and that of translanguaging. Focusing on ways of educating that leverage bilingual students’ translanguaging, we then provide evidence of actions taken by two U.S. teachers in translanguaging classrooms that promote the students’ creativity.

Résumé: Cet article met l’accent sur la relation entre la créativité et les interactions des apprenants plurilingues, c’est-à-dire leur translanguaging. Nous décrivons la différence conceptuelle entre le concept de plurilinguisme et celui de translangaging. Puis, en mettant l’accent sur des approches éducatives qui tirent parti du translanguaging des élèves bilingues, nous présenterons des dispositifs mobilisés par deux enseignant-e-s américain-e-s qui favroisent la créativité des élèves.
