“Image education 2.0”: a new paradigm for the pedagogy of image (statement of intent)

At the time of the massive use of the images by the young public, the image education is more necessary than ever in the school course. Digital technologies are revolutionizing all practices, including pedagogy, especially in its relation to the moving image : we are not just spectators but more and more players of a new media system, with the proliferation of cameras in the pockets of each particular. Some philosophical, conceptual and pedagogical foundations of methods of transmitting culture, knowledge and practices of image are to re-examine, in the light of a context that has already deeply mutated. This requires among others by renewed practices. But why and how ? Elements of reflection and concrete proposals.
