Proposed course: The New Literacy

The course would be titled The New Literacy. The final product would be an iPhone app and the whole course would be geared toward teaching students all of the processes that go into making the app, ie design, coding, graphics, layout, etc.

The course would have no prerequisites and it would be 3 hours. Ideally everyone would have to take this course and it would count toward common curriculum. For students who are more experienced in any aspect of the course there would be an option to work either in groups or individually if they feel they would like to be challenged more.
The course would go over design and layout, using adobe products such as photoshop, indesign, illustrator and premiere (they would be required to host a video in their app). Then they would move into the coding aspect of the course, it would also cover some of the logic behind coding.
At the end of the semester students will present their iPhone app to the class and constructive criticism will be offered.
