Make a Lightroom Web Photo Gallery

Did you notice that Adobe Bridge can no longer create a web photo gallery? No problem. You can make a Lightroom web photo gallery instead. A web photo gallery is a website made from HTML files that displays a series of images using hyperlinks. The home page shows thumbnail images of all scrapbook pages in a grid. When a thumbnail is clicked, a full-size image appears in a frame. A web photo gallery is a creative way to view Photoshop documents. In the past, a web photo gallery option could be made using Adobe Bridge. However, since the recent Adobe update this is no longer available. However, you can use Adobe Lightroom Classic to create a web photo gallery instead. Lightroom Classic is a photo organizer with editing features.

Entrepreneurship Activities – TechnoEntrepreneur

Michalitsa’s Top TechnoKids Pick

Hello from Greece! This month’s TechnoKids top pick is from Michalitsa Papasotiriou. Michalitsa’s favorite technology project is TechnoEntrepreneur. In TechnoEntrepreneur, middle school students launch a restaurant venture. While learning about entrepreneurship, they develop their business concept, raise seed money, track earnings, and promote the opportunity to others.

NOTE: This title was recently replaced with TechnoRestaurateur. The activities are similar. There are project versions for Google Docs, Microsoft Office, or Office Online.

What makes TechnoEntrepreneur, Michalitsa’s favorite project is that the activities help kids to develop business skills from a young age which prepares them for real-life. She also likes that the project integrates the use of Microsoft Office into learning. The tasks, give students the opportunity to learn about Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. Michalitsa states, “Besides the valuable technology skills that students acquire, they learn financial literacy and how to have better critical thinking.”

When asked to choose the activity she likes the most in TechnoEntrepreneur, Michalitsa picked the design of the restaurant floor plan. She says, “My favorite part is when students have to undertake the role of an architect and create the floor plan of their restaurant. That’s the time where the real fun begins. The students put all their creativity together and choose the colors and the textures of their restaurant. That gives them a true and authentic experience. They feel like they are going to open an actual restaurant!”
