  1. These standards are very complicated and hard to follow but are very through. They seem to cover things from tip to tail.
  2. What these standards show is that Montana's OPI embraces the need to teach media arts and literacy. However, as these standards are nearing 10 years old, the rapid pace of how the mediated world changes suggests we may need a little more than creating, synthesizing, and analyzing. Anyone can create content nowadays because it is cheap to make and cheaper to publish. What we are not teaching enough of is the responsibility that goes with this. Students have aspirations of being content creators and influencers, 10 years ago those weren't real terms. What we see in the media today is that the ability to create anything means the ability to influence anyone. Influence is power and power requires responsibility. I think we need to adjust the standards to start reflecting this reality.
