About Screen Education
Screen Education is a partially refereed quarterly magazine written by and for teachers and students in primary and secondary schools in all curriculum areas, as well as some areas of tertiary study. The magazine also publishes articles by educators, scholars and critics.
Published by Australian Teachers of Media (ATOM), the magazine builds on many decades of experience in delivering screen literacy programs for teachers and students. Firmly grounded in both theory and practice, the magazine brings more awareness about the diversity and complex character of the moving image, simultaneously promoting the joy of learning and an appreciation of screen culture.
The magazine includes practical classroom ideas, lesson plans and activities along with essays, study guides, updates on new technology, and book and DVD reviews.
Screen Education is available through subscription, both in print and digitally via Zinio. You can also purchase individual PDF articles via The Education Shop (which accepts school purchase orders and credit card payments), or contact us if you’d like to order a one-off copy of the magazine.
