Donna Pauler has sent some excellent handouts. I have found in teaching
graphics programs to kids (and all computer software) the more step-by -step
I did for the kids, the better.
Adding pictures to the handouts helped tremendously! I would copy - print
screen and paste so the kids could see what it should look like... I spent
HOURS on those handouts - Unfortunately I can not share them with you as
they were on my computer at school -- and all deleted (long story). While
you may not be able to edit Donna's files - you can read them - print them
off - and use them as models to write your own. These will all be linked to
the site soon. I need to take a few days off this week as we are having
company - and going out of town.
Here are some pdfs of some handouts Donna used in workshops for art
teachers to get them into computers. She calls these idea lists:
Generic list, One for using Multimedia or slide show ideas, one for
digital camera and one for creating newsletters.
Donna created these two workshop handouts-one emphasizing Draw and one
emphasizing Paint. These were done to use Claris/Appleworks a the tool.
But the activities in part could be adapted I believe to other
software. Does anyone use Microsoft Works anymore? By the way there is
Claris/Appleworks for Windows. A wonderful program for less than $50.
