TechnoKids Releases TechnoPhotoshop

Are you teaching a course using Photoshop? TechnoKids Inc. has just published instructional materials that will make your life easier. TechnoKids Inc. has just released TechnoPhotoshop. This project is a great way to introduce photo editing to your middle or high school students.

The new TechnoPhotoshop project has everything you need to teach a photo editing course. When you order TechnoPhotoshop, you will receive a teacher guide, student workbook, review questions, skill reviews, extension activities, sample photos, and other helpful resource files.

The TechnoPhotoshop project integrates photo editing skills into a meaningful task. Students learn how to use Photoshop to create a digital scrapbook, which is in the form of a presentation, photo gallery, or contact sheet. To begin they learn about digital cameras and how to use the equipment to take high-quality photographs. They then apply this knowledge to take a collection of photos they will use in their scrapbook (if a digital camera is not available sample photos have been provided). Once students have their photos, the fun begins! They transform their photos using filters, color adjustments, retouching tools, layer styles, shapes, text, and selection options.

TechnoPhotoshop is recommended for students in grades 6-12.
