Digital Image Manipulation: A Compelling Means to Engage Students in Discussion of Point of View and Perspective
Hofer, Mark; Swan, Kathleen Owings
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v5 n3-4 p290-299 2005
With the importance of imagery in our culture and the increasing access to both digital images and the tools used to manipulate them, it is important that social studies teacher educators prepare preservice teachers to provide their students with opportunities to develop a critical lens through which to view images. As we strive to encourage the development of effective citizens, the critical examination of images can be an effective vehicle to help students critically evaluate a variety of sources. This paper examines historic and more recent trends in image manipulation and provides an initial framework for discussing the current issues surrounding photo manipulation in the media. Descriptions are also provided of exercises in image manipulation focused on perspective in the social studies.
