Hi Ana,

I can see too, but now I have a headache.

Does it mean that we have to provide both Yr 11 pathways so that those
who chose to finish at Yr 11 have a "certificate". It seems if we just
offer the Cert III in Media those that drop out at Yr 11 will only have
a partial completion of Cert III in Media. Will this be any better or
worse than a completed Cert II in Creative Industries ( Media )? Does
the VCAA require that we offer both Certificates or is it optional?

Also, without seeing the details, it looks like it might be possible to
maintain some scripting under the Author Interactive Sequences UOC.

I suppose when we hear more details, including what will be examined,
the way to proceed will become clearer.

I can see, i know, i can prepare.

First, we have to start calling it "VCE VET Interactive Digital Media"
NOT Cert 3 in media.
Next, why bother with cert 2?
Third, if copywrite is an elective, do we have to teach it for the year
12 exam?
Fourth, for those who want it, there is 3D (i have to say I'm not going
to do it though, its not in the year 12 course).
Fifth, we now have Video in year 12, AHHHHHHHHH
Sixth, I'm assuming that they want us to teach Web, in Author
interactive sequences.

>From my perspective, I am just going to use Unit 1 & 2 to teach all the
software and concepts that they need in Unit 3 & 4 and just adapt the
units to fit. 

For example i might use "Produce drawings to represent and communicate
the concept" to do a comic with storyboard, using flash with buttons and
a little animation (to prepare for 2d animation) 

"Maintain interactive content" would be an introduction to "Author
interactive sequences" 

And the Compulsory units, you could do anything. Just work in the
requirements with any kind of practical task. 

I'm OK with it all. It looks VERY flexible.

:) Ana

The revised VCE VET Interactive Digital Media (IDM)  program has now
successfully progressed though all the required internal committees and
processes at the VCAA.
Attached is a PDF extract from the soon to be published VCE VET IDM
program booklet. This extract has "gone live" on the VCAA website today.
VCAA have made available an extract for both the revised Business and
Multimedia programs because they were fielding a large number of calls
emails about the programs for next year.

The complete hard copy of the program booklet will be distributed to
schools early in Term IV.

Let the discussions begin!!
