Divine Mercy College
Media Production and Analysis
Media lesson is taught from Year 8 to Year 10.
The media are an important part of our culture. They give us entertainment and information; they tell us stories about ourselves and others. They produce works that are enjoyed and appreciated by audiences for their beauty, their entertainment or interest value, their ingenuity and originality. The media can amuse us, stimulate us, move us and, at times, upset or anger us; but, at the same time, they provoke discussion and the development of opinions, points of view and values. Access to a wide range of media achievements enables students to understand the capacity of the media and stimulates creativity in their own productions.
Media Production and Analysis aims to prepare all students for a future in a digital and global world by providing the foundation for lifelong learning about the media.
