Developing a Digital Media Publications Curriculum Guide
MetadataShow full item record
This project was created in response to the need of a foundation course to teach 21st Century Learning Skills and develop student proficiency in using digital media to effectively communicate their mastery of learning outcomes. The project is a comprehensive plan for an instructor to coordinate and implement a successful digital media elective class. Even though computers in the classroom have become the norm in today's high school, and the fact that today's students- Digital Natives- are very tech savvy when it comes to interacting with all types of digital technology, their classroom teachers- Digital Immigrants -are learning technology like one learns a new language. As a result, the emphasis in most classrooms is on interacting with technology, and not using technology to produce authentic products. While students are experts at interacting with technology on a social level and within the classroom environment, they lack the skills and knowledge to use technology to create high-quality professional products. The digital media curriculum is a first step for students to learn the knowledge and skills to be producers of digital media products, with the goal that they will transfer their knowledge and skills to other classes.
