The ICT Training Support Unit ran three very successful days at The Storehouse of Foulis looking at ways to use the digital camera to support A Curriculum for Excellence. Liz Roberts explored the notion of New Literacies as expressed by David Warlick at SETT 2004 by connecting aspects of photojournalism and advertising as a basis for developing a variety of core skills through creativity. Participants were involved in analysis of multimedia advertising before considering the use of the digital cameras to create photographic presentations of their own.
Many photographs were taken by the 30 staff who took part in and around the picturesque Storehouse of Foulis – which proved to be a very successful venue for more than its scenic qualities – before editing (Using Irfanview) and construction of multimedia photostories took place (Photostory 3 for Windows).
