Breaking Boundaries through the New Media Academy – Inclusive Digital Storytelling

The New Media Academy was an 8-week after-school course in Digital Storytelling offered to high school students with and without disabilities in Reseda, California. The course utilized “agency enabling instruction” techniques to engage 20 diverse learners. Participants were recruited from segregated vocational training schools for individuals with intellectual disabilities and a mid-sized mainstream high school. The agency enabling instruction operationalized localized supports and put into practice these supports in the classroom by incorporating principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). The course was the first high school, standard based curriculum teaching multi-media and digital storytelling skills for a diverse learners.
