Wally, and Johanna
I currently teach a 9-12 computer graphics course.
We have an art lab set up with 20 Powermac 5400's with 32 megs, 4 HP 4C
scanners, an Epson Stylus Pro XL printer, and a Lexmark B&W printer. Are my
students spoiled or what???
Anyway, we are using macromedia FreeHand, Fractal Painter, and Adobe Photoshop.
I have 6 sections of the course running this semester, and 4 sections of the
level 2 course running next semester.
It keeps me busy, but I am also teaching Photo and a higher lever art course.
Most of the projects we do are grahpic design based-advertising, collage, and
package design.
At this time we don't do any animation, although I would like to put that into
the 2nd level course.
I also use a SharpVision projector to project my computer screen onto a wall.
There is a great program called Network Assistant that lets you share your
screen, observe other screens, and control other computers from one station.
I use it all the time to lock their screens while I am demonstrating.
Let me know if you need more info.
