Pedagogical approaches to understanding performance in the digitally literate classroom
This chapter studies the act of performing text. The concept of Performance is a core element of a number of different subjects including Media Studies, Drama, and English Literature. The chapter takes aspects of these varying but intrinsically linked subjects into this hypothetical post-Media Studies learning environment and explains how the author would teach this concept as a contemporary understanding, utilising approaches from each subject. This will be pedagogically similar to the recently introduced Teaching by Phenomena method in Finland where instead of focusing on particular subjects, learning is developed through certain topics and concepts, with Geography, History, Economics, and Foreign Languages being covered in the study of the European Union. Media Studies is regarded as a populist subject as the students tend to find it accessible due to having some familiarity of the texts they study; this is an opportunity to develop a course of learning for the students rather than the teachers.
