From Cool2Career @ The New England School of Communications of Husson University
Through their access to Apple devices, students across Maine have rich access to digital production studios for audio (GarageBand - Mac - iOS), video (iMovie - Mac - iOS), and still imagery (iPhoto - Mac - iOS).
Cool, eh? Easy to use, and powerful. Students from across Maine are making great movies and plugging their electric guitars into their MacBook Air or iPad to record and mix their own songs or covers. Student photographers are collecting, editing, and sharing their still image portfolios with friends and families.
And then there are the young people who love to program. Whether they are learning how to create iOS apps, writing code, or working in an object oriented environment to design a game, these kids love the challenge of complex problems.
And you know what, the Maine students that are doing these things are having fun.
But what if a seventh grader or a high school junior began to think that these things they now are doing for fun can, in fact, be the beginning of a pathway to a career. What if these creative students began to see that they can chart a pathway from cool to career?
On May 2, 2014 please plan on coming to NESCom and learn how you can move your enjoyment of video and audio production or digital imagery forward and begin to see yourself on a pathway from "Cool2Career!"
Meanwhile, take a look at the cool digital stuff going on at NESCom, and begin to think about what you might get a chance to do on this exciting day.
