Participant Slide Shows!
Elise M Couper
Week 2: Jan. 21 – Jan. 27
This week we'll view several example slide shows, and read student evaluations of slide show projects. Participants are welcome to share these slide shows with their own classes and post any feedback.
If any of your students want to create a slide show during this session to share with participants and possibly other students around the world, they are encouraged to do so! (We're sure to provide positive feedback.)
We'll also touch on photography (the rule of thirds, composition, and editing).
