The Uses of Film in Education and Communication

by Sol Worth - 1974

The purpose of this paper will be an attempt, first, to clarify some of the causes of the current confusion, which is characterized by seemingly irreconcilable goals, theories, and statements of purpose as to what film is and what it should be in education; second, to present a description of film as a process of communication that can be used in subsequent discussion; third, to discuss how film is used in the classroom; fourth, to present some evidence supporting several new directions in the use of film as a means of instruction related to the notion that film is a means of communication; and fifth, to suggest lines for future research in education relating to such uses of film.
