Digital Media Academy was founded in 1999 on the campus of Stanford University to provide technology education to K12 teachers and develop technology immersion courses for students. In 2002, the Academy for New Media became Digital Media Academy and greatly expanded its technology education programs and operated in the most prestigious universities: Stanford University, Oxford University, NYU, UPenn, U Chicago, U Washington, UCLA, UC San Diego, UBC, U Toronto, and others. Since then, Digital Media Academy has delivered applied technology education to over 500,000+ students in 1,100+ schools in 125+ countries online and in-person.
Our methods and results have been studied and endorsed by research departments from universities, independent education associations, and global brands.
