Abstract

What do blue jeans, visual literacy and e-learning have in common? A research project supported by Adobe Systems, RMIT, University of Technology Sydney and the University of Wollongong, Australia, has been exploring the area of visual literacy and media manipulation in relation to E-Learning. Using the graphic software package, PhotoShop, Australian adolescents were surveyed on their visual and conversational responses to a range of manipulated images to ascertain an understanding of the nature of visual literacy. Through the creation and manipulation of images students were able to use, interpret, analyse and think critically about visual images. These initial research findings have formed the basis for a larger research project exploring standards for visual literacy, guidelines for e-learning and the role of image manipulation in education.
