This session will explore a simple method to teach students of ages 13-14 how to use Photoshop and InDesign by utilising existing YouTube tutorials accompanied with either a paper based or digital ‘booklet’ that takes them step by step through instructions and activities.

By the end of the booklet students have learned specific skills in both Photoshop and Indesign. They then receive a certificate and are ready to start creating their own products.

An explanation of how teachers can embed this unit into the Victorian Digital Technologies Curriculum will also be explained.
