This week it was time for the students to get a chance to see each others work. I put all the photos on a power point presentation and hooked up the projector so we could all see the great pictures. It was a lot of fun to hear the different students shout out “That ones mine!” It really showed how proud they were of their pictures and the work they were able to do on their own. Another of their remarks were to make sure that they all receive copies of their photographs printed out so that they can take them home and share them with their families. Since this was one of the main focuses, it definitely will happen. In fact the teacher of the yearbook, who has been kind enough to let us use his computers and classroom during his prep period, has volunteered the use of his printer for the photographs. He has also invited us back into his classroom so he can take photos of my students at work on the adobe photo shop. We are going in next Tuesday. We also have planned one more outing before winter break and the end of the semester. We are going to go to Candy Cane Lane in Pacific Grove to see all the lights and we will be bringing our cameras with us on the trip. It should make for some great shots but will be too late for the project for my MAE638 class. That is what is so wonderful about this particular project, it can and will continue on after this class is long over. My students will get the opportunity to adjust photos that they take on our field trips and we can make our own album to display for back to school and open house nights.
