SDCUE 2015

San Diego CUE is just about here, and I am super excited to be presenting this year. I am sad that Sandy won't be there, but since she is a bridesmaid in our friend's wedding, we'll let her off the hook! Otherwise it would be a team effort.

We have revamped our Picture This: Enhancing Student Projects through Photography for SDCUE, and are excited to share our learning with you.  Our class resources can be found here:

Our presentation also available as a download. Just click on the picture to download the PDF file. (It is a large file, and no preview is available).

Feel free to use it in your own classrooms to teach your students some photography skills that will definitely enhance their digital projects this year.
