By Mary Lynch Prepared For: Shadow Armfield ETC 599 Hardware/Software Computers Scanners Digital Camera’s Photo Shop Deluxe Internet Step One Students will be instructed as to what hardware/software we will be using. Students will be instructed as to what the final project is and will be given a timeline. Students will be assigned a computer, digital camera and a disk. Students will be assigned a partner. (only if there are to many students in the class.) Step Two (Digital Camera) Students are to take 4 pictures. • Place • Plant • Person • Group When the students are done, they will come back to their assigned computer. When they get to their computer they will be given very basic instruction on how photo deluxe works. Students will be given instructions on how to • Get a photo • Touch a photo up • Save a photo as a gif/jpeg • Trim a photo Students will be given free time to work on their pictures they took in step 2. The next step, students will use the scanner. Students will be instructed prior to this day to bring in a baby picture for scanning. Students will place their picture on the scanner and proceed to scan their picture. The picture will upload automatically to photo deluxe. Students will use the skills they learned prior to this when they took pictures with the digital camera and worked in photo deluxe. They will be instructed to trim, do an instant fix, add text to it and save it as a jpeg. Students will be instructed to get on the Internet and to download a picture of interest. They will be given instructions as such: • Find a picture you like. • Take your pointer and hold it over the picture you like. • Click on the picture and hold your mouse down. • The student will see that a dialog box will appear and they are to click on the words “save this image as.” • Another dialog box will appear asking where to save this image. • They will be instructed to re-name the image and save it to their folder on the desktop. Students will be given a test of their skills. The test will include the following. • Take a picture of anything • Insert the picture into photo deluxe • Crop it (trim) • Add text to it • Fix the pictures color (if needed) They will be required to do the same thing with a picture that they have scanned and a picture they downloaded from the Internet. Teacher Information All this work that you are giving the students to do, taking pictures, downloading pictures and scanning them is going to help the student when they are building their personal web page. It will also help them when building their cultural web page (which is their final project). . Building a Web Page, Step 1 Brain Storm • Students will decide on what they want their web pages to consist of. For example: • Food • Clothing • Lifestyle Students will be assigned a specific topic to research from the internet from list that they brainstormed. Building a Web Page, Step 1, continued The students will be given specific things they are to find on the internet. Students will be given some internet sites to assist them in looking for their topic that was assigned to them. For example if they were assigned food, then they would look for the following items: • Navajo Taco recipe • Fry Bread • Chile Beans • Pictures as well of these foods You are to give the child at least 3 class periods to find this information. That is more than enough time to search and download all that they need. Students are to save this work in a file on the desktop titled “Cultural Web Page.” Construction Zone Students will be given sites that they can visit on the web to help make their web page look nice. The sites are as follows: • http://www.flamingtext.com • http://www.ask.com • http://www.animfactory.com • http://www.aaa.backgrounds.com/html/mainback/shtml • These sites will help the students with their web page a lot. Construction Zone 2 Students will need to have some more time to browse these sites and to explore their options. They will need to be reminded to save their work under the “Cultural Web Page” Folder on the desk top. Construction Zone 2 cont. Students will as a class go to the site, and make a title for http://www.flamingtext.com their first page. We will as a class design the first page together. Starting the Web Page, Step 2 Show a sample page using a projector to view your work on the board. Instruct your students to open “Netscape Communicator.” Go to File, New and then scroll down to blank page. This will allow students to open a blank document where they will “build their web page.” Starting the Web Page, Step 2 cont. Students will be able to download their text that they designed in flamingtext.com. Then we will begin adding text (information about what ever topic they were assigned) and pictures. By now the students will be familiar enough with the program, that they will be able to go solo. Designing a Web Page cont. Students may begin to “clown” around and get impatient, but if you have good classroom management, you will be able to keep them on track. Just remind them that they will be able to design their “own web page” when they finish this one. Designing a Web Page cont. Again, you will need to set a deadline to have page one complete, and a deadline for the rest of the pages. This will be up to you and how quickly your kids will adjust to this technology. Teacher Information This project is not something that can be done in a week or even two weeks. I would suggest you take our time and not rush through it. It can be done in possibly 3 weeks, but even that is pushing it. Don’t rush the kids, because they will get scared and not want to do it. My biggest advice is to be patient. Links Once the students have completed their pages (I would only assign 3 at the most per group or person.), You will review with them how to link a page. This sounds hard but it really is not that hard at all. You should practice this first before you do it in front of your class. Links On the top of the tool bar in After you have found the netscape composer, is a little appropriate file, then you icon that looks like a chain link fence. You will click on the will click apply. It should link and a dialog box will go to the page you linked it appear. Within that box it will to. You can check by ask you to choose a file. Click clicking on the icon that on choose a file. Then you will need to find the file or the looks like a ships wheel. page that you want it linked This will allow you to go too. This may take a few into the Nescape Navagitor times before you get it right, and view your page on the but again be patient. net. Saving Your Work This is a very important part of designing your “Cultural Web Page.” You must remember after each time you insert text or pictures to save your work. If you don’t, you’ll find out what happens. Finishing up You will need to go around to each group and check their work. See if they need any help. If you get some kids that are advanced, let them help each other. Kids don’t feel so threatened when a peer helps them. View Your Web Page If you are lucky enough, you can veiw your web pages by projecting them on a large screen. The students will love to see their work before it is uploaded to the net. Uploading your work!! You will have your technology specialist come in and work with you and the kids on uploading the pages to the schools server. Each school is different. You will need to plan this before you do this big project. You need to make sure that you can put it on your server or that your school even has a web page, before you do all this work. Viewing Your Work, part 2 After your Technology specialist has helped you upload your work, have the kids get on the internet and look at their work. Your Done!! You have now just designed a “cultural Web Page.” Good Job. You should be a little familiar with all this software, hardware before you begin. This can be done, it is not that complicated. Just remember, don’t rush the kids or they will be afraid. Good Luck on your web page…..
