Aesthetic learning, animation filmmaking and ict

The aim of the PhD project is to advance a granular understanding of media literacy by analysing relations between media production and consumption. I co-designed an online learning resource, "The animation island" (AnimationsØen),  for the production of  multimodal, animated film and studied Danish upper-secondary school students’ appropriation of the resources in addition to the results of their collaborative learning processes. Based on multimodal theory, and aesthetic design theories, the project applied ethnographic approaches to studying users’ aesthetic and social learning practices.
