4,538 views

Published on

Inkscape is fantastic Free and Open Source Graphic Software. Easy to learn as well as a powerful tool for creating icons, web graphics and diagrams, and enhancing charts, maps and graphs generated by spreadsheets, or mindmapping applications. How can a drawing program be used across the curriculum? ICT tools enhance every endeavour, and numerous studies show that combining images with text aids learning and knowledge retention. Creating images to illustrate concepts and ideas that can be used in your teaching materials, and encourage students to add images to their work too. Best of all, Inkscape is Free and can be used at home as well as at school.

This is an interactive workshop that requires a computer lab,or a BYO laptop lab. Participants need to have a mouse.

Inkscape: Drawing Across the Curriculum

  1. 1. ... in brief Inkscape is an Open Source scalable vector graphic (SVG) editor. Donna will showcase Inkscape art and practical applications, demonstrate Vector Drawing techniques, and provide pointers on where to go to learn more. Donna Benjamin runs her own business and procrastinates daily by exploring new features and bugs of the bleeding edge version of Inkscape. She has managed to find legitimate uses of the software for creating web graphics, re-recreating corporate logos and creating posters and banners. Creative Contingencies does customised web application development, hosting, research and meeting facilitation. Donna is currently writing a book on Inkscape due for publication in late 2009 and is assisting the technical team with the National Conference in Melbourne in April, 2010 http://acec2010.info Call for presentations open now!
