KEYNOTE 3
Ola Erstad: Media education and media literacies - past, present and future

Media creativity at its best? Link to Youtube, bushandblair

One of the main points of Ola Erstad's presentation was that there is a huge transition taking place which is new and has happened really fast. Our biggest concern at the moment is to understand how to cope with it.

These transformations are:
  • the unit of analysis
  • multimodality
  • creativity
  • media production
  • being critical
Case Norway:

A new subject introduced in the upper secondary schools: media and communication. The course is very popular and schools are now competing against one another trying to offer the course and thereby attract students . The course content is very much focused on production and the researchers are concerned about what the students are really "learning".

Yesterday we got many nice impression about media, but I think the best thing was the movie in the night... I was one of the movies you will always remember, it makes you stop and think about it for a while ,and discuss interesting issues with others. Thank you for the organizers and for the movie makers for gave us the possibility to get to know more Sweden from a different aspect! R-H
