Digital Images in the Classroom

Welcome to the workshop. Today, we will be looking at digital imagery in the classroom. We’re starting from the very first step, taking photos from a digital camera, and leading up to doing something creative with the photos for a future classroom project.

The agenda for today will be:

1) Taking photos with a digital camera

2) Importing photos into a computer

3) Saving photos/creating folders

4) Reviewing & editing photos

5) Transform your Digital Photos: Big Huge Labs

6) Brainstorm: How can we use digital photos in our classroom?
