COURSE OVERVIEW

The Center for Creative Education’s (CCE) Digital Literacy program develops middle and high school students’ abilities to interpret and design communication across the fluid digital formats of film, photography, video, audio, and interactive media. Creatively, students employ the elements of space, time, light, motion, color, and sound to develop their perspectives, feelings, and voices.

The program will focus on three strands named A Sense of PlaceDesigning PSAs, and
Global Vision through Digital Media
 through which we broaden students’ larger
understanding of the digital world so they can adapt to changing technology with confidence.

The first strand, A Sense of Place, highlights local history that teaches students about their neighborhood and Palm Beach County. Project objectives focus on balanced research, interviews and film production. Students develop their interviewing and writing skills, learn to translate research findings into visual storytelling, and produce a short documentary film that captures an issue of local concern. Last year, our students submitted their film for review so they could experience authentic external feedback and a chance be showcased publicly.

The second strand, Designing PSAs, gives students another opportunity for real-world applications in the community. Our students are paired up with local non-profits and challenged to develop digital PSAs that will market content and highlight the organization’s mission. Through this process, students strengthen their collaboration skills, apply their digital knowledge to visually synthesize and brand an organization’s assets in order to create a product that is both artistic and practical.

The third strand, Global Vision through Digital Media, is a series of mixed-media digital projects such as digital galleries, video exchanges, story challenges, and collaborative research. With the expertise of our partner Susan Gay Wemette from Blue Planet Writers’ Room, our students meet and create digital exchanges with other students around the world, comparing lives across geographical and cultural borders for greater understanding. This strand not only helps students’ communication and translation
skills internationally, but provides them with access and interaction with those they would not have access to otherwise.
