      Kim Hoffman leads the digital media course for Middle School students so that they can create their own periodic news works.

The Digital Media Course is a course that gives Middle School students the opportunity to pursue their passions in Digital Media. The primary goal of this class is to produce a student­-led, periodic news program to cover stories and events happening around campus. The course structure intertwines Project-Based Learning (PBL) with technology integration so that students are preparing for tomorrow’s world, all while having fun. PBL is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge. Using PBL, students will develop essential questions that will lead and guide their research as they create a programming for Middle School News and explore other digital interests. This course will provide a space for Middle School students to explore topics of interest while developing digital and media literacy. It’s also an exciting way to give our students a platform to innovate and lead.
