  • 1. Lesson plan on ICT – Granada La Alhambra: Making panoramas on a field trip to the Alhambra in Granada/Spain Photosynth is a powerful set of tools for capturing and viewing the world in 3D. You can take photos in a 360 degree turn and experience a panoramic view. Photosynth allows you to take a bunch of photos of the same scene object and automatically stitch them that you can share with anyone on the web. Objectives: • develop students´ ability • location • Students take a deeper look on the objects and locations they take photos of • promotes teamwork • giving other students/teachers/parents who haven’t gone with them to Spain what it feels like to be in that particula gives a more complete story than seeing them as individual photos. Materials: To make panoramas from your PC, install application from http://photosynth.net/ Cameras or Smartphones with rather good cameras, PCs. Resources: Microsoft tutorials: http://lh4.ggpht.com/-DoScl6uMcOQ/Tp3BNixoW_I/AAAAAAAAAXU/WKFbLm80oFg/s1600 h/image%25255B7%25255D.png Lesson 1: Students use cameras to take phot pairs or small groups.

Seeing many photos stitched together gives a more complete story than seeing them as individual photos.

  • 2. Students start by standing in the centre of the room with your camera zoomed wide. They spin around, taking overlapping shots as they go. (Make sure successive photos are overlapped by at least 50%.) Depending on how wide the lens goes, they‘ll probably need to take 15-30 photos to go all the way around. To give the room a good 3D model, they should next shoot overlapped shots from each of the corners. For saturation coverage and the most reliable reconstructions, they should shoot from the centres of each wall as well. It is also a great idea to have different students to take the photos. It does not matter if different cameras are used, or the resolution differ. It does not matter if photographs are taken on a number of days. Better to take extra photos than risk a missing link! Lesson 2: Students create a folder on their desktop and download photos into this folder for later use. They should sort them and delete photos they don´t want to use and make sure the the photos are all right side-up. Lesson 3: Lecture about how to use Photosynth and the Image Composite Editor. Teacher shows good examples and the link for online tutorials. Lesson 4: Students launch Image Composite Editor and drop a set of panorama image files in the top panel. They have to select "Stitch." Once this process is completed, they click on "Publish to Web." Students will be redirected to the Photosynth website where they will Login and click on the "Upload" button. (The process of uploading the images is not a quick one and be warned that this may take a while, depending on the number of images students have.) Evaluation: • see rubric
