Television and Visual Literacy. Readings from the 13th Annual Conference of the International Visual Literacy Association.
Braden, Roberts A., Ed.; Walker, Alice D., Ed.
This collection covers a variety of workshops and presentations related to the research, theory, technology, or implementation of some aspect of visual literacy. More than 40 authors are represented, with 12 of the papers dealing directly with television. The document begins with an overview and a keynote address by Neil Postman. Individual papers have been classified and grouped according to categories: research papers and literature reviews; theoretical statements and position papers; course outlines (one for a college course in visual literacy and one from a course to teach teachers to use television effectively); and demonstrations, applied theory, and case studies. Numerous diagrams, figures, and illustrations are provided to contribute to the visual emphasis. Specific topics include preschool television viewing; elements and uses of microcomputers, videodiscs, photographs, illustrations, and television; visual media design; creative thinking; color; teaching methods; and projects.
