Welcome to Digital Media Design, the first year course in the CTE Digital Arts career pathway in Palm Springs Unified School District. Students in Media Design are introduced to a variety of software tools available to them on the campus of James Workman Middle School. Word processing, presentation, spreadsheet, photography, video editing, podcasting, screencasting are a few of the applications we explore! We’ll even explore a bit of coding! Students also learn the importance of becoming good digital citizens. Online safety, information privacy, and cyberbullying are some of the topics we investigate.
Students need to bring their creativity and a great attitude! Of course a pencil or pen and paper are important, too!
