Digital/Media/Arts (DMA) is a two-year curriculum for academies and pathways
focused on digital media. DMA prepares students to enter college and media careers by
integrating academic standards and career-technical learning. This hands-on session
focuses on how the DMA curriculum can be used to strengthen the arts and media

  • Welcome, thank you for coming. Introduce selves: Ilene, Deidre, DaveWho’s here: Already teaching digital media in an IT academy?Planning to teach digital media in an IT academy?Teaching digital media in another kind of academy?Teaching fine arts?School or district administrator?Other?Did anyone come to the session that Dave and our colleague Emily McLeod did last year? Explain that this session will be very similar.
  • This session is an introduction to the Digital/Media/Arts curriculum
  • .D/M/A was developed by Education Development Center, in collaboration with ConnectEd: The California Center for College and Career, with funding from The James Irvine Foundation.Ilene: EDC:--Designs and delivers innovative programs that transform learning around the world. We work in three areas: international development (youth job training in Haiti; educational radio programming), health (professional development for doctors and health providers in effective communication with families and children), and PK-16 education. I directPathways to Career and College in the Learning and Teaching Division; our programs support the intellectual and career development of learners, preparing them to succeed in the workforce and as citizens. . Deidre is an experienced media arts educator who has worked in both formal and informal education and currently provides technical assistance and PD for the Adobe Youth Voices program and supports media literacy efforts in Chicago funded by the McCormick Foundation.[Dave introduces himself and ConnectEd.]
  • Briefly describe the D/M/A program as a whole: the two-year curriculum (grades 9/10 or 10/11) and integrated units in math, history, English, and science. Have recently applied for approval as a NAF 3rd Party Curriculum; intended to be integrated into curriculum for NAF Academy of Information Technology.1st yearlong course: Foundations in Visual Arts, designed to cover the same content as a traditional fine arts course—with students learning sketching, drawing, painting, and sculpture. Can be adapted and the projects completed using digital media. Throughout the course, students look at arts, media, and entertainment careers, engaging in authentic projects similar to ones they might engage in within the industry. 2nd year courses (1 semester each): Foundations in Media and Digital Design, focusing on four specializations:AudioVideoAnimationGamingInterdisciplinary units that are designed to be integrated with the projects in the Foundations course units 
  • Curriculum is aligned with NAF Curriculum & Instruction Standard 1 (cf. we were invited to apply for DMA to be an approved alternative)
  • Courses focus on essential knowledge and skills, as well as qualities and habits of mind—identified by industry advisors with whom we consulted as we planned, developed, and revised the curriculum. Were also piloted. And as a result of feedback from a panel of teachers, including NAF teachers, are developing some supplementary materials, including suggestions for differentiating instruction, additional opportunities for students to develop reading and writing skills, and options for streamlining the curriculum for those who don’t have sufficient time.Key skill that curriculum focuses on throughout is storytelling, giving students an opportunity to tell both their own stories and those of others. You will also focus on storytelling in the session activities.
