An Investigation into the Practice of Screen Education. The Introduction of Films and Television into Education as an Essential Area of Study, Phase I. Final Report.
Hodgkinson, Anthony W.
A variety of screen education courses were designed, implemented, and evaluated in a public school system. Specific objectives of the courses were to teach screen education together with English skills and subject matter, to teach film production to interested students, to teach about media operation and performance, and to demonstrate that media could provide more relevant approaches to social questions. Subjects were self-selected public school students, and were found to be significantly less capable than their peers. Because of this nature of the experimental group, a central aim of the project was considered to be to develop student self-knowledge and awareness. Findings from evaluations of students, community and staff evaluations of the project, evaluations of the courses taught, and a critical evaluation of the equipment used supported the majority of the objectives formulated for the investigation.
