This session has been designed for Primary School Teachers and will provide participants with a system for the introduction of basic Adobe Photoshop skills. The introductory units can be used with older students and the content of this session could also be of interest Middle School Teachers who would like to learn some basic skills in Adobe Photoshop. Participants will gain hands on experience with Adobe Photoshop using the system that I have designed for Junior School programmes.
