Introduction to Teaching and Learning On Screen: Mediated Pedagogies

Authors: Readman, M.

Pages: 1-7

Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan


Films and TV programs that include education settings, students, teachers and learning are abundant; they speak to common, or comparable experiences that the audience will have shared and they are richly imbued with narrative potential in their evocations of power, status, discipline, knowing, discovery and desire.

This book is about demythologizing some of that mediascape in relation to education - it is an exploration of the imaginative terrain of teaching and learning and is underpinned by the idea that the imaginary is always ideological.
