SUMMARY:

This research investigated the collaborative creation of memes in multilevel English classrooms. The context is that of the Professional and Technological Education in distance learning format, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The methodological approach was that of an Interactional Dynamics (DIPAC), under the principles of active learning. This study aims at exploring the possibilities that active learning methodologies, along with an approach based on the collaborative production of various text genres, may bring to the English language learning process in multilevel high school groups. The specific objectives of this study are: 1. To describe the involvement of all students who took part in this research, unattached to their previous knowledge of the target language, through the collaborative production of various text genres supported by active learning methodologies. 2. To analyse the ramifications of the activities in terms of stimulus to students’ motivation, autonomy, collaboration, critical literacy and content production/creation. 3. To discuss and reflect upon the activities, in order to identify possibilities of improvement and implement changes. This study is supported by the theoretical pillars of the multilevel approach and collaborative production of text genres; active learning methodologies and blended learning; collaboration and autonomy through DIPAC. Given the characteristics of the research and due to the data comprised by the corpus, we have chosen to develop na action research of qualitative nature, through a case study perspective. Data was obtained through the teacher’s reflective diaries, students’ posts on Google Classroom and students’ answers to the final evaluation form. As for the results, data analysis has shown that students expressed mostly positive opinions about the activities and in terms of their motivation, autonomy and learning having actually improved, as well as their interaction with each other and the teacher. Opportunities for improvement were also detected, discussed and explored. The teacher-researcher has also reflected on her works’ possible contributions for the general perception society has about teaching and learning English at school.
