Children are Centers for Understanding Media.
Rice, Susan, Ed.; Mukerji, Rose, Ed.
Because of the importance of television in the lives of our children--they spend more time with it than in school--it makes sense that they should learn to process the vast input from television and become knowing and active about the media. This collection of essays presents ideas by contributors outside of the "painfully vague conclusions of the research about the impact of the media on children." Essays consider such concepts as television as a source of literacy and becoming, a project which allowed children to use film equipment, a partial list of some educational functions of the camera, resources for further study, information about beginning photography, filmmaking without cameras, flipbooks, animation, storyboarding, creative filmmaking for children, sound, a children's film theatre, a primer for video studies, and a selection of media activities employing materials commonly found in schools.
