Can Haz Permission-Granted Images?

Students are exploring issues of image copyright, public domain and sharing (commons) licenses - and, at the same time, learning basics of image editing. They will be putting all this knowledge together by making mock-ups of popular internet memes like LOLCats and Feminist Ryan Gosling.

They will also be working to craft a "Fair Use" statement to account for legal use of copyrighted materials in educational settings.

Pecha Kucha Comes to Class

Students are combing many of their skills and much of their new knowledge towards presenting in the form of Pecha Kucha. Students will build and deliver a presentation on a subject of their choice that will show off their learning in these areas:
  • Basic Design Principles
  • Digital Photography
  • Color Theory
  • Fonts & Typefaces
  • Image Editing 
  • Storyboarding - and more...
And - they will show  off all this knowledge in 400 seconds - using the Pecha Kucha standards of 20 slides at 20 seconds each with accompanying live delivery.
