One of teachers’ primary jobs is equipping students with the knowledge and skills in order for them to succeed in the real world. Digital media is a realm of education that every student could benefit from.
Throughout this live event, you will learn WHY you should be teaching digital media to your students from veteran teachers: Shanda Hall and Robb Goff.
Shanda and Robb have both had incredible success at their schools building a digital media program from the ground up.
Why Digital Media Education?
Even though technology is always evolving, the skills that these students are learning in their digital media classes are timeless and marketable.
Shanda expressed the importance of students being able to effectively communicate through digital media and how digital media education teaches this.
“This is not about what equipment you have, this is about a skill-based class. The strategies we use to communicate and how it can be done to send out a message into the world through digital media.”
Digital media education is fundamentally different from other traditional subjects that are taught within schools. Take math for example, do students publicly post their quizzes or tests when they are proud of what they accomplished? No!
When students create videos and graphics in their digital media classes they want to show their school and community what they have done. This motivates students to perfect their craft and continue to strive for excellence.
Your School and Digital Media Education
There is no one-size-fits-all option when talking about digital media education. Robb explains how Striv can help your school start building its digital media curriculum.
“There are so many things you can do with digital media, we can help you tailor the education that fits your school. We’ve seen it all and we have done it all.”
