Media Education in Scotland. Outline Proposals for a Curriculum.
Robinson, T. K.; And Others
This document, prepared for the Scottish Council for Educational Technology and the Scottish Film Council, sets forth basic principles on which discussions of the future of media education in Scotland might be based. The nature and scope of media education are reviewed, and media education is portrayed as a means of helping children and adults to greater understanding of their own experience of the media by studying media messages or other products in the context of the various industries, institutions and professions involved in their productions; the economic, political and constitutional background to the development of these bodies; and the broader social and cultural setting in which media production and its reception by a variety of audiences, operates. The aims, objectives, content and methods for media education for primary school, early secondary, later secondary, further and community education, and teacher education are described in the form of curriculum outlines, and problems and issues regarding provision and organization of resources as well as the need for effective methods of assessment of media education curricula are also discussed.
