Digital Literacy

Studio, 3 Credit Hours

Digital literacy is associated with learning how to effectively find, use, summarize, evaluate, create, and communicate through digital technologies. Using technology strategically to find and evaluate information is crucial. This serves as a crash course in the technological tools necessary to produce digital artworks. Project assignments concentrate on the acquisition of basic skills and the aesthetics of digital media art as an expressive medium. Students will develop personal agency as a result of research, with the goal of becoming self-sufficient producers of visual culture. Through the use of video, visual coding, 3D modeling, and digital imaging the nature of contemporary digital artworks will be introduced and discussed in the evaluation of work. (COR 102)
