The Australian-published quarterly media studies journal Screen Education was made available in the UK and Europe for the first time earlier this year. Screen Education is aimed at media teachers, and at secondary school teachers interested in harnessing the power of visual media to stimulate learning. It is essential reading for those with an interest in media literacy, offering a unique and engaging perspective on screen education, and is an invaluable resource for upper secondary students and university students studying film. Each issue provides the reader with practical classroom ideas, lesson plans and activities along with essays, study guides, updates on new technology, and research into media pedagogy. The journal also analyses and offers ways to navigate the ever-changing new media landscape and the benefits (e.g. interactive learning tools) and potential issues (e.g. cyberbullying and pornography) that come with it. Screen Education publishes articles by educators, scholars and critics, and is partially refereed. What's in this issue? Screen Education no.
