Published: 11/12/04

WATERTOWN, MA November 12, 2004 -- Tom Snyder Productions announces the release of Digital Photography Workshop for Teachers™, the latest in a popular series of how-to books for educators. Written by well-known author and teacher Janet Caughlin, Digital Photography is a complete guide to integrating digital camera use into the classroom.

The book contains lessons using digital photography that can help teachers meet their curriculum objectives. It comes with a CD-ROM filled with photos as well as lesson plans and supplemental materials that can be modified to meet individual educator's needs. Digital Photography Workshop for Teachers also contains a variety of helpful resources, including:
• a glossary of commonly used terms in digital photography
• an introduction to buying a camera and accessories
• tips on photo composition and classroom management
• and easy-to-follow instructions for using today's most popular photo editing software, including Photoshop Elements, ImageBlender, SimplyVR, iPhoto, and Microsoft Photo Editor.

I spoke with educators who have digital cameras in their schools but don't know what to do with them. I also knew teachers who were using them in incredibly effective and creative ways and were thrilled to share their ideas with colleagues."
Caughlin's objective in writing Digital Photography was to help teachers take advantage of a powerful learning tool using time-tested lesson ideas and tips from educators around the country. "I spoke with so many educators recently who have digital cameras in their schools but don't know what to do with them. I also knew some teachers who were using them in incredibly effective and creative ways and were thrilled to share their ideas with their colleagues."

This book enables teachers to create a variety of lessons customized for their own classroom needs. There are lesson ideas for every subject and every classroom: from students creating chick embryology progress reports complete with photo documentation, to a teacher using iPhoto to make a movie on geometry found in the everyday world.

Janet Caughlin, a teacher with over 29 years of classroom experience, is also the author of PowerPoint® Workshop for Teachers™, Word Workshop for Teachers™, Excel Workshop for Teachers™, Handhelds for Teachers and Administrators™ and several other books in the Workshop Book series, which help educators integrate technology into their classrooms. Digital Photography Workshop for Teachers includes a Mac/Win CD-ROM and costs $35.
