16 SES 08 B, Teacher Competency, Designing Learning Materials, and Music Production
New conditions and functions for teachers in an environment saturated with digital technology impose new prerequisites for teachers’ work practices (e.g. Lankshear & Knobel, 2013). The use of images in education is a topic that concerns teachers all over Europe. This study highlights a problem that might also have a common, European, solution.
The creation, or design, of teaching materials is an increasing part of teachers' everyday work (Annerberg, 2016; Selander & Kress, 2010). Teachers’ dependence on the Internet, and commercial search engines like Google Search, as sources for images when designing teaching materials is problematic in the light of previous research that draws attention to the consumerism values promoted by the corporate image banks dominating the Internet (Machin, 2004). This study aims to problematize how teachers’ use of digital resources when designing teaching materials interacts with their understandings of specific teaching situations. The study is part of a major longitudinal study which investigates teachers’ literacy practices from a New Literacy and a Critical Discourse perspective (Clark & Ivanič, 1997).
