In this module, students develop their skills in creating and developing pictures and designs, using a variety of graphical tools and saving their outcomes in digital form. Students are given the opportunities to import and edit images from a range of sources – such as clipart, graphics packages, the internet and, scanners, digital cameras or mobile phones – and to use these to create their own designs. In doing this, they will be expected to create repeating patterns or effects (such as texture, mosaic and tile) by using stamps and/or copy tools. They will need to use a variety of brush sizes, shapes and effects and symmetry tool (flip vertically/horizontally, rotate). They will also need to be able to select appropriate areas of an image, then to copy and resize them.
The picture or design should include image(s) imported from at least one of the following sources: clipart, internet, scanned image, digital camera / mobile phone. The repeating pattern can be created by using stamps, or by copying images imported into the picture.
Students use at least three different tools, including the symmetry tool, and two different brush sizes/effects.
At the end of this course, student will take the ICT Starters Assessment of Next Steps Stage 1 Module 2 : Exploring Images.
