Media Literacy

Put simply, moving image media literacy means 'reading’ and 'writing’ moving images, understanding, enjoying and sharing them.

Moving Image Education refers to learning and teaching practices which develop moving image media literacy. These practices also provide uniquely valuable means to realise the aspirations of Scotland's new curriculum, a Curriculum for Excellence.

Scottish Screen is promoting and facilitating the development of moving image education through advocacy, in schools, teacher education and training, in educational contexts outside schools, in research and resource developments, especially online resources.
