Shields and Screens

For the sake of argument, TWOK-onwards Trek is erased from history.

What's the difference between "screens" and "shields"? Are they part of the same system? A layered defense?

The TOS/TMP defenses seem a bit more complicated than "press a button and a magic bubble pops up", but I can't for the life of me figure out how exactly to put it together.

If there's some commonly-accepted fanon tech about this, I promise I won't shout at other posters (or the mods).
STAR TREK: 1964-1965, 1966-1969, Jan. 21-23 1972, 1979-2001, 2003-2005, 2009-?
