Digital Media Courses
About Digital Media
The Digital Media courses provide students experience working with industry-standard software and technology providing a strong base that leads to success in the digital workplace. The curriculum supports teachers as they develop student understanding and skills to prepare to earn the industry-recognized Adobe ACA certifications in five areas; Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver and Premiere Pro.
The Digital Media courses are sequenced into two course offerings.
Digital Media I
Students are exposed to digital media principles in the areas of graphic design, animation, audio and video production, and web design, demonstrating how all elements of media design and development work together. Students have the opportunity to earn their ACA certification in PhotoShop and Illustrator.
Digital Media II
The introductory concepts learned in Digital Media I are taught with greater depth while emphasis is placed on application of skill using the industry-standard software. Students in this course create portfolios of their digital creations that showcase their work and provide them with a viable tool to demonstrate their abilities to prospective employers. Students have the opportunity to earn their ACA certification in InDesign, Premiere Pro and Dreamweaver.
The Digital Media course offerings are aligned with the Adobe Certification Associate exams. The opportunities to complete industry-certifications while in high school serve as a tremendous advantage to our students.
