Title Digital media production: Learning potential in teacher education
Author(s) Leijon, Marie ; Söderquist, Elisabeth

English abstract
This paper focuses on teacher student experience of digital media production in initial teacher education. In a pre-study 25 teacher students participated in a digital media production. Research questions are concerned with what notions of learning and media the teacher students have in their initial teacher studies and how do they reflect on their work with digital media production. These questions are analysed from sociocultural and multimodal perspectives. The pre-study shows that media has the students use a hierarchical classification when they discuss media and the written word dominates. They emphasise the need of critical reflection with the teacher as an important agent. While working with a media production their perspective broadens. The multimodality of resources used to create meaning allows the students to reflect upon how to use these resources in formal schooling contexts. They describe their learning process as a dialectic relationship between doing and analysing. The students stress the reception of the media productions. In the paper we argue that the digital media production created a high learning potential for the participants.
