For the past two weeks, 6th Graders have been experimenting with a program called Paint.NET. For their introduction, they were given an image of the Space Needle to manipulate in any way they chose. Here are two examples of their work.
While we had a ton of fun playing with these images, we used our new knowledge of the program to transition into a discussion of copyright and the Advanced Image Search in Google. We learned that there are no images of “Katniss Everdeen” from The Hunger Games that can be used, shared or modified but if we searched a more general term like “elephant” there were more than 4000.
