SWC: New Media 11

New Media 11 offers a program of studies designed to reflect the changing role of technology in today's society and the increasing importance of digital media in communicating and exchanging ideas.

The course is designed to acquaint students with all aspects of podcasting and to help them become better storytellers. With an emphasis on ethical practices and First Nations' storytelling protocols, students learn to think critically about the stories they consume and are given a working knowledge of current trends in audio production. There are lessons on sound gathering using professional sound gear as well as cell phones, interviewing, script writing, audio editing and developing a "radio voice." Over the course of a year, students participate in the development and production of feature-length podcasts on subjects of their choice.
