Resumen

La escritura creativa proporciona nuevas opciones a los estudiantes para motivarlos a aprender inglés utilizando el lenguaje de manera significativa para interactuar con el mundo. Así, este proyecto incorpora principios de la multimodalidad con la escritura creativa como una oportunidad para incentivar estudiantes de octavo en una institución pública en Tunja. Durante este proyecto de investigación acción, se realizó la correspondiente intervención pedagógica: se diseñaron cuatro talleres con actividades de escritura creativa integrando articuladamente imagen, texto, sonido y lenguaje oral, etc. los cuáles fueron agregados a la plataforma multimedia de aprendizaje EDMODO. Los datos fueron recolectados a través de encuestas, artefactos de los estudiantes y grupos focales. Por otro lado, se siguió el proceso de planeación, prueba, observación y reflexión. Los datos recolectados fueron analizados a través de los principios de la teoría fundada. Los resultados indican qué al integrar en escritura creativa con la multimodalidad y ambientes virtuales de aprendizaje, el inglés se vuelve significativo para los estudiantes como un medio de autoexpresión y comunicación durante la pandemia del Covid-19; su motivación aumenta cuando el inglés permea espacios digitales con el propósito de compartir pensamientos de manera creativa utilizando canciones, imágenes, dibujos, e incluso su voz junto con sus escritos. Por lo tanto, la escritura creativa multimodal en ambientes virtuales demuestran ser estrategias positivas para potenciar la motivación del uso y aprendizaje del inglés y estas actividades pueden ser aplicadas en futuras clases virtuales e híbridas
