Objective:  Students create a digifolio using Adobe Dreamweaver/Flash tools that are ready for online posting.  The projects are to be reflective of projects completed throughout the school year.  

Criteria:  Students need to show examples of animation, 3D modeling, non-linear editing, digital graphic design, audio and a completed resume.

Skillsets:  Proficiency in Photoshop, Final-Cut Pro, Blender 3D, Garage Band, Dreamweaver, Flash, Mocha, After-Effects, Bryce, Motion, chroma-key, DSLR (includes video), lighting concepts, virtual-set design and audio mixing.

Outcome:  Career tools that students can post online for potential employers, online businesses and public-networking to both guide and assist in future job opportunities. These digifolios are intended as a continual work-in-progress.

A student critique follows and the entire class is given this rubric to help with the activity. They  are asked to be more constructive in their criticism -- rather than destructive --  in order to assist improving the digifolios so that the JTED students can later make changes on their own before they officially post their folios online.

A class session was devoted to various web-hosting sites, online webpage creators, and ftp applications so that students can edit, develop and post these online creations to further their career options.
