EDC is working with ConnectEd: The California Center for College and Careers, with support from The James Irvine Foundation, to develop a curriculum for career sector academies in California public high schools. This project focuses on the arts, media, and entertainment (AME) sector.
EDC is working closely with practitioners, higher education, and California schools to:
- Develop two foundations courses: Visual Arts and Media and Digital Design.
- Model integrated units in mathematics, social studies, science, and English/language arts. These units will demonstrate the application of knowledge and skills from academic disciplines to AME professions.
This project-based approach incorporates pedagogies to support 21st-century skills, as well as career exploration and work-based learning to prepare students for postsecondary education and careers.
