Beyond the image: the intersection of education for development with media literacy.
Jeffers, Gerry
This paper is based primarily on reflections from my own experiences as a second-level teacher and, more recently, my experiences as a teacher educator listening to feedback from my students, particularly in the area of civic, social and political education (CSPE). A starting belief is that when teachers build up their own individual ‘image-folders’, they have at their fingertips a valuable and versatile resource for learning and teaching. Photographs culled from newspapers, magazines, calendars and other sources add an immediacy and an urgency that, by their very nature, textbooks cannot capture. Such image folders are especially relevant in the area of development education where immediacy and urgency are important values.
