DIGITAL APPS

This week we will be discussing the good, the bad and the ugly about technology. We will watch some video that deal with this topic along with come teacher led discussion sessions where we talk about the things we have experienced online. The goal of this conversation is to help promote healthy practices for students while online. This Thursday there will be an essay due, This will be a one page essay single spaced with 12pt font. The topic of this essay will be the Good and Bad of technology.

Photography

This week we will be discussing “why photography?”. I want every student to take time out and find a picture that means a lot to them. It can be a picture that you’ve taken yourself or maybe its a picture that someone else took. Once you have that picture I want each student to prepare an Essay (1 page NOT double spaced) detailing the importance of the picture. If there is a way to get the picture to me digitally either through email or a flash drive I would like to have it, that way I can display it as each student presents to the class.

WEB DESIGN

This week we will be getting into some Photoshop. Some of you may be new to this program, but even if you aren’t these exercises will be great for you.  We will be starting with the basics of Photoshop, and learning some of the fundamentals of this program. Getting this instruction now will only help us with our future projects that will be coming down the pike. Use this link below to get started.
