1. Cindy Zielenski-Wilbraham Middle School 7th Grade Science Digital Imaging in the Classroom

2. Prior Experience Created student slideshows to music using digital images documenting projects geology field trip pictures incorporated into classroom discussions Personal use

3. Objectives To incorporate real life examples of monocots and dicots into the classroom To appeal to different learning styles Students will be able to identify and take digital photos of each Students will be able to write a compare/contrast essay (Type III-John Collins) upon completion of this slide show

5. Monocots Embryo with single cotyledon (seed cannot be split in two) Flower parts in multiples of three Major leaf veins parallel Stem vascular bundles scattered

8. Techniques Used Copying layers Creating bold type with the correct opacity and text tools in Photoshop Elements 3.0 Saving as Photoshop AND JPEG files

10. Techniques Used Aforementioned Image resizing and resolution Enhancing and adjusting color Adjusting hue/saturation Eraser, opacity and size brush

13. Dicots Embryo with two cotyledons (seed can easily be split in two) Flower parts in multiples of four or five Major leaf veins netted Stem vascular bundles in a ring

16. Techniques Used Enhancing flower edges to make them really “pop” Filter sharpen Unsharp mask Adjust amount and radius

20. Techniques Used Enhance brightness to make digital photos of presentation quality

22. Outcomes of developing this Digital Imaging Project I learned to take better digital photos and pay closer attention to camera settings There wasn’t a picture that I couldn’t fix with Photoshop Elements 3.0 Excellent tech support allowed me to navigate the program with ease and frustration free! (Thanks Goose!) The program is user friendly and I didn’t realize how many tools I used until I analyzed the presentation.

23. Other subject ideas Digital images can be taken of students and then enhanced to teach foreign language vocabulary Language Arts teachers can use it in creating poems and literary pieces (story boards and books) Math teachers can use it in finding “Around the town geometry” Students can be put in groups and then asked to take pictures of specimens in Science for classification units or examples of geographic features for topographic map making in Social Studies
