Pursuing Image: Making Sense of Popular Pedagogical Representations.
Vinson, Kevin D.
This paper explores contemporary pedagogical images and considers various mechanisms by which educational researchers might investigate their complex meanings. More specifically, it works to: (1) define image; (2) contextualize the construction (re)production, maintenance, manipulation, and consequences of pedagogical images; (3) suggest theoretical frameworks with which pedagogical images might be investigated (including those offered by Bakhtin, Barthes, Boorstin, and McLuhan); (4) apply those frameworks to particular examples of pedagogical image (including a cartoon, a set of newspaper headlines, and a film); and (5) discuss various possible meanings and areas of significance with respect to the pursuit of pedagogical images. The paper concludes by indicating the need for further research and by reminding scholars of the contemporary importance of (and access to) popular culture and technology, as well as seeing and being seen.
