Demonstrate understanding of advanced concepts of digital media



Key messages for teachers


S
tep
-
ups from level one to level two

Level 1 =
Demonstrate understanding of
basic

concepts in digital media

Level 2 =

Demonstrate understanding of advanced concepts in digital media



Curriculum

Learning Objective:
Knowledge of Digital Media

At level 7:
Demonstrate understanding of advanced concepts in

digital media


Indicators
:

Students can:



discuss why advanced tools and techniques have been used to create, edit
and integrate digital media outcomes and how their use have enhanced
the outcome.



explain

the digital media standards and conventions used to produce
digital media outcomes, and discuss the positive and negative
implications of adhering to these standards and conventions when
developing digital media outcomes.



explain how asset management and
file management are applied in the
development of digital media outcomes, and discuss the importance of
effective and appropriate asset management and file management in the
development of

digital media outcomes.



explain legal, ethical and moral considerat
ions in relation to the
requirements of digital media outcomes in the wider community.



explain the data integrity and testing procedures used to ensure a digital
media outcome meets the specifications, and how they were applied.



discuss the importance of a
ppropriate data integrity and testing
procedures in the development of digital media outcomes.



evaluate how the application of advanced tools, techniques, standards and
conventions affect the quality of digital media outcomes.



discuss the relationship betw
een standards and conventions, and legal,
ethical and moral considerations in relation to the requirements of digital
media outcomes.


Teacher guidance

To support students to develop understandings about the advanced concepts in
digital media at level 7, t
eachers could:



Provide students with the opportunity to explore a range of digital media
outcomes.



Ensure the digital media outcomes students investigate demonstrate an
integration of media types and are of sufficient rigour for this level (see
indicators
below).



Provide opportunity for students to explain how advanced tools and
techniques have been used to create digital media outcomes.





Provide opportunity for students to discuss the implications of adhering
to digital media standards and conventions whils
t developing digital
media outcomes.



Provide opportunity for students to discuss the importance of asset
management and file management whilst developing digital media
outcomes.



Guide students to consider the legal, ethical, and moral responsibilities to
t
he wider community when developing digital media outcomes.



Guide students to understand the importance of appropriate data
integrity and testing procedures whilst developing digital media
outcomes.



Support students to develop literacy strategies that
assist them to write
reports in a way that will allow them to identify, describe, explain, and
discuss.


Key messages from the standard



This standard is about analysing a digital media outcome and is not about
creating a digital media outcome.

However

with
in a programme of work
it
is possible
to link this knowledge standard (advanced concepts of digital
media) with a skills standard where students get credit for creating a
digital media outcome.



T
eachers need to ensure that t
he digital media outcome i
nvesti
gated is
suitably


advanced


in nature.

One aspect that determines the digital
media outcome is suitable for use at level two is that it has been
developed using advanced tools and techniques as outlined in explanatory
note 3. However this is not an exhaus
tive list of advanced tools and
techniques so teachers need to use their own professional judgement.



Outcomes is

plural so students are expected to investigate at least two
digital media outcomes. One of these outcomes may be their own if they
wish or they can use two outcomes developed by professionals.



Teachers need to encourage students to explore the importance
of
effective and appropriate asset management, file management and
naming and other standards and conventions used in digital media



Teachers need to ensure students understand the language in the
standard associated with assessment as well as the specialis
t language
related to
digital media
. Students obviously need to understand the
specialist words such as
digital media standards and conventions
. But in
addition they must understand the words used to describe the level of
expected performance at each achie
vement grade; ie explain for achieved,
discuss

for merit, and
evaluate and
discuss for excellence.



Teachers need to ensure students know how to
present their evidence
that

covers everything asked for in the standard.
This evidence will be
presented in a fo
rm negotiated with the teacher, produced in any media
that clearly communicates the student’s understanding of advanced
concepts of digital media
