Contexts, Practices and Pedagogies

  • Michelle Cannon


Chapter 2 looks at how moving image work is positioned in relation to academic language, and unpacks the media learning landscape with insight from classical thinking on dualisms between the empirical and the mind. Discourses that function as barriers to media-making in schools are examined, such as the decline of arts and humanities subjects, and neoliberal instrumentality related to curriculum and assessment interventions. A view of literacy as a set of social practices, inclusive of the audiovisual, is presented as cycles of media crafting, critique and artistry. These facets of media education form a framework of five interdependent dimensions attending to the complexities of modern pedagogy in digital spaces and becoming a media literate practitioner in a networked society.
