Moving Image Education
Moving Image Education is about helping young people to question, analyse, explore and understand the meaning of what they’re watching and hearing. It refers to learning and teaching practices which develop moving image media literacy and Creative Scotland works in partnership with key organisations and providers to use Moving Image Education to help realise the aspirations of Scotland’s new curriculum.
The Moving Image Education website is a free resource for teachers that contains advice on analysing film, explores the culture and heritage of the moving image and provides a full guide to making your own movies in the classroom. There is also a library of downloadable teaching resources as well as a forum for practitioners to share their experiences.
More About Moving Image Education
The term 'moving image education' refers to learning and teaching practices which develop moving image media literacy. These practices involve analysing moving image texts, creating them, exploring appreciating and sharing them, and being discerning about them. This is neatly expressed in the widely accepted '3Cs' of media literacy: the cultural, the critical and the creative.
Many view the '3 Cs' as overlapping parts of a whole. Each enriching and supporting the development of the other aspects, rather than separate and distinct learning activities
