Engaging the digital natives isn't as daunting as one thinks. This article describes how three classrooms do it. One of these is in Brevard Public Schools in Viera, Florida. Pete Episcopo, the digital-media artist of the school, wanted to share his love of all things digital and teach essential 21st-century skills so students could be better prepared for post-secondary education after high school. After filling in for a teacher and "transforming the class" by teaching PhotoShop, Illustrator and InDesign, he spent the summer creating a visual-design curriculum, and now his classes are among the district's most popular. Episcopo's students learn to use online photo libraries, scan images, take digital photos, edit audio and video files and master the world of digital storytelling with Adobe Creative Suite technology.
