The other day during tech class, I introduced a few new concepts. The first thing the kids had to do was take take pictures from an external drive (zip, or pen drive) and transfer them to their iPhoto. They had to learn how to use the Apple + A keys to highlight all the pictures, then they had to drag and drop the pics. They also had to properly eject the drive. Then, the fun started, as we could use Comic Life, a wonderful program on their MLTI computers. They experimented with captions, different background and crops, as well as fun titles and fonts. Pretty soon, the kids will be able to create their own comics to pass standards in different content areas.
