In this semester-long class, students will focus on how to use digital media to communicate, collaborate, and create.  We will also be covering copyright concerns.

Students will review the basics from Intro to Technology (excluding keyboarding). Students will author media using a variety of devices. Students will learn applications used for podcasting, picture and video editing, and will publish their work to iTunes and YouTube.  Students will have the opportunity to produce podcasts which will be broadcast over local radio. Students will also produce media for ASTE’s (Alaska State Society for Technology in Education) iDidacontest.

Some of the applications that students will be using are as follows:
  1. Microsoft Office, particularly Publisher
  2. Google Docs
  3. Audacity for podcasting
  4. Picasa Web Albums, Picnik
  5. Windows Live Movie Maker
  6. Paint.NET
