Screens are the everyday currency of communications. From mobile phones and computers to television and movies, screen culture dominates modern culture. Despite this moving image education remains largely under-developed in Scotland's schools curriculum and other educational contexts.

We are working to change that. Scottish Screen aims to ensure that people of all ages and backgrounds are inspired and equipped to analyse, appreciate, explore, create and share screen media.

The new schools curriculum, Curriculum for Excellence represents a major step forward, especially through its redefinition of text and literacy to include moving image and other media.

To find out more about Moving Image Education, download our most recent publication and DVD, Moving Image Education in Scotland, which surveys current developments, research and resources in Scotland, and highlights the role moving images and other media will play in the new curriculum, especially in literacy.
