IDM Framework

The Interactive Digital Media program is a new Technical Vocational Education (TVE) framework. Technical vocational initiatives are an important part of the educational structure and play a major role in developing a flexible and well‐educated work force able to address current and emerging industry and labour‐market needs, allowing Manitoba to compete globally. Alumni from this program have found employment at Complex Games and SkyBox Lab games.

A minimum of 8 approved credits are required from within this approved Senior Years Technology Education Program cluster. In addition, students must fulfill the graduation requirements by completing optional credits. A Grade 11 Social Studies credit is not compulsory for graduation from the Technology Education Program.

Grades 9 to 12 Interactive Digital Media: Manitoba Curriculum Framework of Outcomes–Draft 2015


Curriculum Implementation Dates

During voluntary implementation, teachers have the option of teaching the entire new draft curriculum as soon as Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning releases it on the Technology Education website.

They also have the option of teaching the courses from the previous curriculum. Teachers who implement courses before system-wide implementation need to ensure that students who are already taking courses from the previous curriculum achieve all SLOs with a minimum of redundancy.

Voluntary implementation of all courses begins in the fall of 2015 and will continue until their respective system-wide implementation dates.
