 Digital-Imaging Learning Bundle

This year I will be focusing on the Digital Literacy Curriculum, which will be shortly implemented in schools across British Columbia.  icon-familyphotoThis Digital Literacy Curriculum asks educators to integrate technology into their teaching practices from Kindergarten to Grade 12.  As parents, educators and onlookers, it is important to learn about what that looks like in our elementary school classroom.  Software, websites and educational app bundles will play a crucial role to meet these learning outcomes.  This lesson is on teaching Digital-Imaging to Kindergarten to Grade Two students.


Kindergarten to Grade 2

Use digital-imaging technology to modify or create works of art for use in a digital presentation. (C, T, CC, CI, TOC)

Digital imaging or digital image acquisition is the creation of digital images, typically from a physical scene.  The term is often assumed to imply or include the processing, compression, storage, printing and display of such images. The most usual method is by digital photography with a digital camera, but other methods are also employed.
