Communication Technology Curriculum screenIn our Exploring Communications course, students focus on visual and graphic media.  Informational content includes the history of various types of media and their impact on society.  Students study digital video editing, including tools and practices commonly used by professional video editors.  Students investigate the basics of digital camera features and operation, such as file formats and image quality.  Students learn photo editing and manipulation techniques.  They also cover the basics of layout and design.

Hands-on activities include building pinhole cameras, editing digital video segments, editing and manipulating digital photographs, creating a logo, developing marketing pieces for a school club, team, or organization, then applying a design onto a T-shirt.

There are four units in the Exploring Communications course:

  • Intro to Communication
