Media Arts enables students to analyse past technologies, and use existing and emerging technologies as they explore imagery, text and sound to create meaning. Students participate in, experiment with, and interpret cultures, media genres and styles, and different communication practices.
Students learn to be critically aware of ways that media are culturally used and negotiated, and are dynamic and central to the way they make sense of the world and themselves. They learn to interpret, analyse and develop media practices through their experiences in making media arts. They are inspired to imagine, collaborate and take on responsibilities in planning, designing and producing media artworks. (SCSA 2017)
Media Arts knowledge and skills ensure that, individually and collaboratively, students develop:
- confidence to participate in, experiment with, and interpret the media-rich culture and communications practices that surround them
- aesthetic knowledge developed through exploration of imagery, text and sound to express ideas, concepts and stories using effective teamwork strategies to produce media artwork
- creative and critical thinking skills to explore different perspectives in media as producers and consumers
- awareness of their active participation in local and global media cultures, including using safe media practices when publishing online materials.
