On Friday, June 9th, Journalism & Media Academy (JMA) students presented their final projects from Content Day, an open working session held every Thursday through the spring semester. Content Day provides students with the opportunity to self-direct their work and fully engage in student-centered-learning, where in addition to gaining mastery, they learn valuable soft skills, including time management, prioritizing and planning. Projects focused on digital storytelling through animation, audio, video and digital art and were centered on a common theme: Human Interest. This year’s title was Personal Stories, Public Voices. The event took place at the JMA Satellite campus in the CPBN Learning Lab.
