Photoshop in the primary school

474

Published on

This presentation was given during a recent Adobe online course called Photo Imaging - a crash course for the classroom. It gives examples of ways I use Photoshop Elements in my year 6 classroom. I use Photoshop Elements to reach some of my Art and Literacy outcomes. The skills my students learn are transferable and relevant, since Adobe Photoshop is still the market leader in photographic manipulation.
