I am aware of some of the 2-D static work being done with computers and
paint programs. Other than some minor touch-ups with Photoshop and playing
around with the old Aldus Superpaint, I have little experience. However, I
feel that the potential of the technology is in interactivity (watch out
for buzzwords) and multimedia (there's another one). If you can afford
applications like Director, etc. you're lucky. We cannot. But, Hyperstudio
for the Mac is a useful little tool that elementary students can learn
quickly and produce interactive presentations. It has limited painting
features, but will accept graphics from a number of sources, including a
digital camera.
