Curriculum for Excellence

Scotland's new curriculum, Curriculum for Excellence represents a generational opportunity to remake schools education in Scotland. As our 2006 publication Moving Image Education and A Curriculum for Excellence shows, MIE provides a uniquely powerful context for the development of CFE's four key capacities. Now, many of the final Experiences and Outcomes (April 2009) suggest a significant recognition of the role learning and teaching about and through moving image media can play in the new approach to the curriculum, in discrete curricular areas, and in interdisciplinary work. In, particular, the wider definiton of 'text' in the key area of Literacy and English represents a critical step forward for 21st century learning in Scotland. 

‘The definition of ‘texts’ needs to be broad and future proof: therefore within Curriculum for Excellence, a text is the medium through which ideas, experiences, opinions and information can be communicated. Texts not only include those presented in traditional written or print form, but also orally, electronically or on film.’

Read more about this in Moving Image Education in Scotland (pages 34-39).
