Making Better Photos with your Smartphone

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Join us to share tips and tricks for making better use of the camera you and your students carry everywhere: a smartphone. We’ll start with some basic photography techniques and then take a mini photowalk around the building to try them out. After we'll look at easy ways to edit your images and share them with the world. Throughout the session we’ll discuss ideas for using photography everyday in your classroom. If time allows, we’ll also demonstrate how to easily take 360° immersive images that can be used in Google Cardboard. Be sure to bring your Apple or Android phone so you can play along.
