The Australian Curriculum: Media Arts involves using digital multimedia to create representations of the world and tell stories using formats such as television, film, video, newspapers, radio, games, and mobile media.
In Media Arts students study, design, create and distribute multimedia works. They learn to engage with communications technologies and cross-disciplinary art forms to design, produce, distribute and interact with a range of print, audio, screen-based or hybrid artworks and explore, view, analyse and participate in media culture from a range of viewpoints and contexts. They learn to be critically aware of ways that the media are culturally used and negotiated, and the factors which shape contemporary communication through media technologies and globally networked communications.
