The two clips below are a testimony of how Dr. Jim Cummins has inspired the work of many educators and researchers worldwide as can  be seen in the many and varied forms they have chosen to express their appreciation for him as a scholar and as the remarkable and extremely approachable human being he is.

To explain the content of these clips using Dr. Cummins’ Transformative Multiliteracies framework, we could say that the Tribute Slideshow contains traditional text words in the form of poetry or prose; whereas, the Tribute Video is a multimodal and multilingual collage of clips, slides, and even music. Therefore, both clips complement each other. We encourage you to watch them both, get inspired, and take Dr. Cummins’ work to the next level in contributing to critically analyzing and transforming education across contexts!
