About

Course Overview

The Digital Media Technology program at Summit Technology Academy gives students an opportunity to prepare for college and careers in arts, audio/video technology, and communications. Students will focus on the complete video and audio production workflow from pre-production through post-production. They will work in teams to integrate video, motion graphics, and sound in entrepreneurial and career experience-based projects for their schools and/or communities. Students have the opportunity to gain skills towards an industry-recognized certification in Final Cut Pro X or Logic Pro X.

Digital Media Technology uses a project-based learning approach. Each project has phases that follow a design and development process from project planning and analysis to evaluation and distribution. Students gain experience through real-world projects that help them understand roles and processes across a broad range of careers involving audio and video. The projects contain activities that require students to plan their communication and focus and then evaluate and improve their communications. Specific attention has been paid to developing concepts and principles for thorough, effective communication to multiple audiences.
