Choose your own adventure, Gordian Knot for a holistic approach to writing? : A creative writing experience in teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language through cooperative learning based wikis. (English)
Abstract [es]

El objetivo de la presente investigación es el de aproximarse al potencial que el género de hiperficción explorativa Elige tu propia aventura (ETPA), abordado desde la producción, puede tener de cara al desarrollo de la competencia escritora en ELE. Como muestra, se ha tomado a un grupo multicultural y plurilingüe de 18 estudiantes de la Universidad de Estocolmo, con una competencia comunicativa mínima en español de B2 marco. Se ha llevado a cabo un análisis cualitativo-cuantitativo que, de forma correlativa, abarcaba el estudio del proceso de composición, del producto alcanzado y del impacto de la tarea sobre el componente afectivo de los participantes. La investigación asignó al grupo de control, la composición cooperativa de un cuento tradicional a través de una wiki, y al experimental, la de un ETPA; todo ello en base a una hipotética oposición entre un ejercicio compositivo lineal y uno de tipo recursivo, respectivamente. Los resultados parecen sugerir que, efectivamente, la estructura no secuencial de la ficción hipertextual propicia un proceso de composición marcado por la recursividad que repercute en la consecución de un mejor producto, en especial, con relación a las propiedades textuales de adecuación, coherencia y cohesión. En lo afectivo, la composición de un ETPA también parece constituir una actividad que, por su novedad, incide positivamente en la motivación de los aprendientes y en un sentimiento de autoeficiencia generado por la resolución exitosa de la tarea.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this research is to uncover the potential that lies within the explorative genre of hyperfiction entitled Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA), approached from the student’s final production, and its significance for the development of writing competency in Spanish as a Foreign Language (ELE). As our target sample population, we have chosen a multicultural and plurilingual group of 18 students from the University of Stockholm, all of whom have acquired at least a B2 level of the Common European Framework of References for Languages (CEFR) in communicative competence. This study has carried out qualitative-quantitative research that, in a correlative manner, encompasses the study of the writing process, the final written product, and the impact of the task over the affective component of every participant. The project required the control group to create a cooperative composition of a fairy tale by means of a wiki, and the experimental group to CYOA; all of which was based on the hypothetical opposition between a lineal compositional exercise and a recursive one. Results indicate that the non-sequential structure of hypertextual fiction leads to a recursive writing process. Consequentially, this has an impact on the creation of a better product, especially when related to textual properties of adaptation, coherence and cohesion. Within the affective sphere, the composition of a CYOA could constitute an activity that, due to its novelty, has a positive effect on the learner’s motivation and on his or her sense of self-efficacy generated by the successful resolution of the task.
