Week 1: June 10-13

  • Becoming a Multimedia Storyteller (E009)

    This course is perfect for creative students who love to tell stories in a variety of ways; writing, video, podcasting, and photography will all be covered during our time together this summer. This is a great opportunity for students to “test drive” the Multimedia Communication Pathway during the summer by getting a taste of what we do in multimedia courses during the school year. This will also give students who don’t have room in their schedules to take Intro to Multimedia Communication during the school year the chance to jump right into their school's extra-curricular multimedia programs thanks to the skills they will learn during the summer.
