Hi folks,

I am away at my grad like I told you. You have a quiz today, nothing you can really study for as we have been learning this for the past two months.

At 12:45pm, the quiz will appear on my blog automatically as programmed. Download the file, fill in the blanks or click on the radio button for the appropriate answer. Save as pdf and hand in to the handin folder in the s:/ handin > Su_DP11 > 1.4

As always, Last name first initial. eg John Smith is SmithJ and them quiz2. SmithJquiz2.pdf

You will be getting a different quiz than 1.2 and this quiz will actually count this time for term I.

After the quiz, you have free time. Sorry folks, no cameras.

Be good to my TOC and see you Friday.

Circle of trust, if I can trust you when I am not there than I can trust you enough to loan you our cameras.

Web11 – November 19th

Hi folks,

I am at the elementary schools once again.

There are Photoshop CS4 tutorials in the handout folder in s:/ > Handout > Su_Web11 > PhotoshopCS4Web

Please download the exercise files to your desktop when you need to access them.

Work through the tutorials, as you do so, think about how you can apply the Photoshop to your web design.

A couple of you have yet to hand in your resume assignment.

DP11 – Nov. 19th

Hi folks,

I am away at Elementary Schools today, once again.

Okay, our next project is of course your self-portrait and this is an important one and I know it is a bit cheesy…but it is fun especially with the software we have. Before you begin, I want you to think about how you want to portray yourself. Have a look at these websites:

http://digital-photography-school.com/self-portrait-photography-tips

http://www.shutterbug.net/refreshercourse/portrait_tips/197/

http://photodoto.com/im-ready-for-my-closeup-6-methods-for-perfectly-focused-self-portraits/

As always, there is no right way of making a self-portrait…it is totally up to you as it is about self-expression. Please keep in mind that I will be using the one you hand in for our web gallery.

Think about it…however, we will not be using cameras today.

Today, I would like you to think about John Oliver and why you love it. C’mon really… there must be something you really love about it. Our next project is to collect images of John Oliver for a media production for our school. Things to think about, a specific space in the building, the people, the courses, the hiding places, and etc…

That said, I want you to hand in a written assignment and put it in the handin folder.

1. Describe what it is you love.

2. In your mind’s eye (your imagination), create 5 images.

3. Talk about the significance. What story are you trying to present?

4. How are you going to create these images? with help, depth of field, noise, motion…

5. Presentation…choose your perspective, down low, in angle, up top.

The challenge is creating what you mind sees, but that it the true essence of photography. And that is composing a picture that tells a story. Have a look at this website and click on one of the essays.

In Silence is a good one, but a bit depressing.

On a different note, there are still some of you that have not handed in your pictures.

Once you have handed in your pictures and handed in your written assignment, you can have free time.

For those who have, I am pretty pleased with many of them. Well done, I should be getting your marks to you shortly.

Education is preparing for a shift. Another reason why we need more technology integration into the classroom to better facilitate the learners of tomorrow by reframing the delivery model that is no longer the preferred medium.

Students are constantly consuming media, but the level significantly drops when students are in class. Students are accessing information, but do they really know how to process it? Moreover, are students able to critically reflect upon the information and its sources? By reframe the delivery model, perhaps students will become more engaged and the content may be more relevant as well as interactive.

Some food for thought.
