PURPOSE

New York City graphics career and technical education programs use more Internet Protocol infrastructure resources than many other CTE disciplines.Students search images and multimedia resources, access e-learning curricula, critique online video and audio productions, enter digital graphics competitions and participate in online certification exams.

Graphics students also produce a lot of new work: Digital photography and illustration, high resolution image scanning and manipulation, e-portfolios and document databases, interactive multimedia productions, digital video creation, editing and distribution, and web site design and development.

The Graphics Industry Advisory Commission’s Graphics CTE IP Infrastructure Study has two parts:

Develop recommendations for industry-standard computing and communications facilities needed to deliver high quality graphics CTE instruction

Test current classroom Internet performance and configurations to create a benchmark for graphics program reviews.
