Overview

Digital video and film technologies are transforming classrooms across the world. Teaching the Screen looks beyond the buttons and knobs to explore ways of teaching video and film effectively in secondary classrooms.

More and more young people have access to low-cost filming and editing technologies-mobile phones, computers, portable digital players-which is changing the experience of digital storytelling. Approaches to classroom teaching and learning need to change too. The authors offer a new pedagogy of film storytelling that draws on research from effective classroom film learning practice. They contextualise screen learning within different educational settings, discuss how teachers can highlight aesthetics in film appreciation and filmmaking, and explore the impact of different technologies.

Teaching the Screen is essential reading for educators who want to create engaging learning activities with screen technologies in secondary English and other subject areas.
