This paper defines the notion of "dialogic local space" and highlights its importance to teaching and learning.

McKinney, Carolyn; Tyler, Robyn – Language and Education, 2019
Language ideologies profoundly shape and constrain the use of language as a resource for learning in 'multilingual' or linguistically diverse classrooms. In this paper, we draw attention in particular to the ideology of languages as stable, boundaried objects and to the colonial invention of African languages. Against this backdrop, we analyse an…

Gordon, Steven Lawrence; Harvey, Jaqueline – Language and Education, 2019
A key factor in providing quality education is the main language of instruction (M-LoI). This creates a challenging situation for education policymakers in post-colonial multilingual countries such as South Africa. Language-in-education policies must valorise indigenous languages and redress their exclusion in past education systems while ensuring…

Odugu, Desmond I.; Lemieux, Camille N. – Language and Education, 2019

This contributes to poor educational and…
