Digital / Media / Arts (DMA) is a two-year curriculum for academies and pathways focused on art and digital media. DMA prepares students to enter college and media careers by integrating academic standards and career-technical learning, and the first year has been approved as an “f” course in the UC “a-g“ system. This hands-on session focuses on how the DMA curriculum can be used to strengthen arts and media academies, and on how DMA integrates academic ways of knowing into career-focused courses and infuses academic courses with career contexts.
