Pre-Recorded Online Course – allows your learners to watch the pre-recorded videos and do them at a time that is FUN for them! You can also spend extra time on the topics your child is most interested in. Since this is a flex class with no live meetings, students can log in at a convenient time to complete the week’s lesson. We will be going through each week as a group and I will post the lesson weekly (depending on which day you started).
In this 6 week class we look at the basics (23 different tips and tricks will be taught) of taking great photos on a Smartphone. (Android or Apple phones). They will learn all the tricks to becoming amazing photographers using a device that is becoming the new way of taking the most amazing photos if used correctly. There will even be a time for sharing our favorite photos with the group and getting advice on how we could improve.
We also talk about the safety aspects of taking photos and posting them on social media or texts.
No experience is required to take this class.
Students will be provided with 6 separate videos to watch for each topic. These are outlined below.
The videos will contain the information required to give students a good understanding of each topic and each one will include homework for the students to undertake during the week. Homework assignments will include writing a list of topics, interests and areas of expertise in which the students might be interested in developing. There will also be research assignments into how to choose a style, the importance of images and videos, and all the details needed to make a great photo.
After watching each class video and completing the homework assignments, students will be provided with feedback and the specific next steps to make them awesome photographers. They will then review each others photos and make suggestions for each other. They will asked to play a photo creation game to see who can make the funniest photo and score each other to see who was most funny. That means lots of interaction between me the teacher and learners between themselves after each class to get the homework assignments completed correctly.
