In these subjects I plan for 40 lessons per term based on 40 minute time frame per lesson, I start each week as follows:

Day 1 lesson and how to use software,

Day 2 lesson development students working the software,

Day 3 Students begin assignment,

Day 4 Students work on assignment

Each task is given three - four weeks to complete

Term 1
Week 1 - 2 learning the task and skills (Inspiration & Internet search)
Week 3 - 4 creating assignment 1 & 2 (Gizmo & Technology Process)
Week 5 - 6 Homework and test - working on assignments - marking
Week 7 - 8 Next skill set (Illustrator) (Camera required)
Week 9 - 10 Second assignment (Famous Faces & My Avatar cartoon face)

Term 2
Week 1 - 2 continue with assignment 3 (Famous Faces)
Week 3 - 4 creating the assignment 3 part 2  (Cartoon Face)
Week 5 - 6 Homework and test- (post production) working on assignments - marking
Week 7 - 8 Next skill set (Soundbooth or Audacity - Microphones & headphones)
Week 9 - 10 assignment 4 My Radio Show

Term 3
Week 1 - 2 continue with assignment 4 (Photoshop jaw talk)

Rationale:
Multimedia will introduce you to the broad range of software and  hardware used in Upper School IT and Business subjects.
It will also help you understand how to use the complete “Technology Process” when tackling the practical problem-solving challenges found in any Technology & Enterprise subject.
Description: Multimedia is the perfect place to blend together your creative and artistic flair with your logical and systematic techno-thinking.
Students will explore digital photography and videography, and use webcams,  scanners, microphones etc. to create fantastic multimedia including  2D animations, vector and bitmap graphics, interactive multimedia
presentations, movies, clay-mations, animated diagrams, concept maps,
photo morphing, photo imaging, audio files, web pages and simple graphics
programming.

As well as learning many new technical skills, students will become
conversant with the Design principles of good design and apply these to all  tasks.

Entry Requirements: Basic software navigation skills; a commitment to applying the full Technology Process (investigating, devising, producing, evaluating) to tasks; the ability to think innovatively & creatively as well as logically and analytically.

In these classes I use Worksheets and Web Quests as the main source, many worksheets can be used across several ICT lessons so in some instances the students may have already undertaken the work in Cert II IT or Cert II Bus or in ICT classes like AIT

Worksheets explain the elements of the topic with questions and test sections for students to answer

Web Quests cover topics where students must find information on the Internet or in Resource material and answer all questions.

Multimedia will introduce you to the broad range of software and hardware used in Upper School IT and Business subjects.
It will also help you understand how to use the complete “Technology Process” when tackling the practical problem-solving challenges found in any Technology & Enterprise subject.

Entry Requirements: Basic software navigation skills; a commitment to applying the full Technology Process (investigating, devising, producing, evaluating) to tasks; the ability to think innovatively & creatively as well as logically and analytically.

Prerequisite Access to computer and Internet facilities at home would be an advantage, but not essential.

Task 3 Cartoon Face

Original image of Frances O'Connor

I actually took on this as a contract through my Graphic Design days, Ms O'Connor required a full face photo but only had one with her hair chopped off. In the middle image you can see where I have cloned the hair back onto Ms O'Connor. The finished image was used in the poster for the movie Mansfield Park

I created the final image using photoshop, I often gave this task to multimedia students who showed some skills in image manipulation as an extra worksheet.

I try to make Multimedia encompass a range of skills including making posters, creating and manipulating images, making a radio jingle and playing with creative software.

Students create a Power Point Portfolio of all work, a sample is below which will cover most topics.
