One of the most exciting new programs at the University of Hawaii is the Academy for Creative Media (ACM), just approved by the University Board of Regents last month. ACM is the University's evolving 21st century model of a "film school," and is founded on the following propositions:

ACM is a system-wide program that engages all the campuses of the University of Hawaii system throughout the State.

This month's High Tech Hawaii will bring together the principals of the ACM with teachers and students of digital technologies from the Community College and High School level to talk about the the ACM and the importance of digital media for education in Hawaii. During the live airing of the program, questions may be called in to 956-5670 from Oahu or 1-800-342-7949 (neighbor islands) or sent by email to hth@hawaii.edu.

High Tech Hawaii is a live monthly call-in show produced by the University of Hawaii to shed light on high technology activities within the state. It airs live on the fourth Tuesday of each month during the academic year from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m. High Tech Hawaii can be seen on PEG Access cable channel 55 throughout the state as well as on Craig TV Channel 21. It is live on cable on all islands except Maui where it is tape-delayed. A live webcast is available anywhere on the Internet at: <http://www.hawaii.edu/hth>

Now in its 6th year of production, previous High Tech Hawaii shows have highlighted topics such as Spam, Identity Theft, Kakaako as a High Tech Hub for Hawaii, High Tech Approaches to Teaching Languages, Kids & Networking, IT in the Travel Industry, the Hawaii-China connection, computer security, IT education and training, data centers in Hawaii, wireless, telecom regulation, electronic commerce, telemedicine, distance learning, assistive technologies for the disabled and the Pacific Telecommunications Council.
