Students are enrolled in iTECH’s Digital and Multimedia Design Academy for up to four years, during which time we witness their tremendous growth and development. This development comes not only in the area of creative achievement, but in maturity and character of communications skills as well. iTECH students enter as freshmen and learn and master skills in computational media and some in computer programming, becoming experienced and competitive lab members in a short amount of time. iTECH students quickly learn to manage time, work in group situations under strict deadlines, and to recognize the importance of a strong work ethic, persistence, and intellectual integrity. iTECH students become valuable members of our community and role models for newer classmates. As their teachers, they make us proud.
The posters you see on display where produced by Logan Larroque. Below is what Logan had to say about his three year learning experience with us.
“At iTECH, I not only learned and became certified in Photoshop, a program I thought I would never be able to understand because of how difficult it looked, but also learned and became certified in Adobe Flash and Illustrator. Using the skills I have claimed at ITECH, I have won numerous awards around the state of Florida, including Miami Springs Senior High School’s first ever Critics’ Choice Award in Publicity Design. In addition, I was awarded first place for the 2015 Miami-Dade County Public Schools’ Division of Human Services Human Trafficking Awareness Poster Contest and presented with a gift from M-DCCPS Superintendent Carvalho. I will be going to the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York to pursue a career in musical theater, I know I will always have graphic design and the skills I have acquired at iTECH in my portfolio to use in the work force. iTECH provides such a unique and beneficial experience in training students for the future and for the booming technological era we’re living in today. I know that I will carry what I’ve learned here with me for the rest of my career.”
