Free one-day workshop on digital visual culture in education
Picturing Change: Digital visual culture in early years education
Saturday 19th January 2013 ; Venue: Headington Campus, Oxford Brookes University, Oxford
This FREE one-day workshop will explore the role of digital visual culture in the formal and informal education of young children. As the screen becomes increasingly prominent in homes and schools as a source of visual stimulation and as a medium for visual exploration, educators and educational researchers must take on the responsibility of understanding how this cultural change will influence the development and learning of young children. Picturing Change will be an opportunity to discuss the theories and methods that are best suited to this task, as well as a forum for sharing findings that have been made in the field so far.
Keynotes will be given by Professor Jackie Marsh (University of Sheffield) and Dr Kathy Ring (York St John University). Themes of the workshop will include:
- Photography and film in early years settings
- Digital exposure in the home
- Young children’s picture-making on screen
- Learning in the context of digital game-playing
- Digital visual methodologies for researching early childhood
- Practitioners’ approaches to the integration of digital media
